Chief Electoral Officer wants changes to Election Act

Alberta's Chief Electoral Officer is looking to make changes to the system; after recording the worst voter turnout at the last provincial election.
Lorne Gibson has created a report outlining 1 hundred and 80 recommendations to the Election Act, and is asking for the legislature to make the changes.
Gibson's report says allowing people to vote anywhere, not just in their home electoral division, will help increase voter turnout.
He also says setting polls up in areas that are already busy, like malls, airports, work camps and college campuses would also help.
At the March 3rd Provincial Election, only 40.6 per cent of Albertans came out to mark their X.
