FAQ's

Planning on running in the 2021 Municipal Election?  Lived in Lacombe since on or before March 20, 2021? (at least six months preceding September 20).  This is a good place to start with important information and resources below.

The term of office for all elected candidates is four years.

The positions of the Mayor and Council at the City of Lacombe are “at-large” positions, which means that each individual elected represents Lacombe as a whole (rather than a particular section of the City).  From the candidates running, One (1) Mayor and six (6) Councillors are elected by over 11,000 eligible voters.

Potential candidates can familiarize themselves with the role by speaking to members of Council or Administration, by spending time reading Council minutes and agendas, and by reviewing the City website.

Potential candidates sometimes attend Council meetings, as do members of the public.  See the Council meeting schedule (PDF).
