Prince Albert residents will head back to the polls this fall after city council approved the by-election dates to fill a vacant Saskatchewan Public School Division trustee position.

The vote is scheduled to take place on Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Polling locations will be set up at Westview Public School, Princess Margaret Public School, John Diefenbaker Public School and Arthur Pechey Public School.

Advanced polling will be held at the John M. Cuelenaere Public Library on Thursday, Oct. 19 and on Saturday, Oct. 21.

The by-election is being held to replace trustee George McHenry, who passed away in June 2017.
