Long waits, ballot shortage mar election night as Calgarians turn out in droves to vote

Calgary voters in some areas have faced waits of hours and some polling stations temporarily ran out of ballots amid a municipal election with an unexpectedly tight mayoral race, a slew of open council seats and a campaign that has struggled to stay above the muck.

The city says it has an ample supply of ballotsĀ and says more are being delivered to polling stations that have run out or are running low. A list of the polls in question has not been released.

According to Elections Calgary, anyone who was in line by 8 p.m. MT will be allowed to vote.
