City Hall drew candidates out to sign their papers and officially kick off the municipal election.
Nomination Day allowed hopefuls to run for mayor, councillor, public school trustee and the Catholic school trustee.
"It's a very exciting day for Fort Saskatchewan," said Brenda Molter, director of Legislative Services and returning officer. "It's a very small window [to declare on Nomination Day] to declare."
A number of candidates mentioned that they'd be out door-knocking or placing signs immediately after signing the necessary papers. Some candidates said they'd be taking a more digital approach (with Facebook, Twitter and a website).
Nomination Day is held precisely four weeks before the day of the election, October 16.
