Fort Saskatchewan came out in droves to the first advance poll in the 2017 Election.
536 people flocked to the Dow Centennial Centre to cast a ballot in this year's decision.
In 2013's election, October 5's advance vote saw 202 people turn out, October 9 saw just 144 cast a ballot.
"It's always nice to have a really good turn out for the election, that's our goal," said senior legislative officer, Robert Stephenson. "I really couldn't say exactly why people are getting out and voting but I think it's because we have an engaged populous and that's always a positive thing for an election."
Stephenson was also happy to report everyone came well prepared with the necessary identification and the whole voting process running quite smoothly, even with the addition of the tabulator.
"Everyone seemed to be really enthusiastic about [the electronic tabulator], it was really positively received."
The next advance vote is on Saturday (October 7) from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. in the Dow Centennial Centre's Scotia Bank Studio.
