Calgary voters complained about long lines and disorganized polling stations after the polls closed at 8 p.m. during Calgary’s municipal election. Reports suggest some communities only had one polling station while other polling stations ran out of ballots. At St. Mary’s Hall located on 18 Avenue and 2nd Street SW, more than 200 people were waiting inside to vote.
