City Launches School Trustee By-Election Info Tools

Winnipeg By-Election

With a school trustee by-election less than two months away in three Winnipeg wards, the city is launching a handful of digital tools to prepare eligible voters.

A by-election on Saturday, June 11 will be held for the school divisions of River East Transcona (Ward 3), St. James-Assiniboia (King Edward-Deer Lodge Ward) and Louis Riel (Ward 2).

A new by-election website contains information before voters head to the polls. The city will also launch a mobile app in the coming days, as well as Twitter and Facebook pages.

“We feel it is important to provide as much information as possible, in a variety of ways, to allow potential candidates and the general public to stay connected and understand the process related to running for School Trustee”, said Marc Lemoine, senior election official.
