Voting:
You can register to vote for the SEPARATE School Board if on Election Day, you:
  1. Are a Canadian citizen;
  2. Are at least 18 years of age;
  3. Have resided in the school division or on land now in the school division for at least three consecutive months immediately preceding the day of the election;
  4. Have resided in Saskatchewan for at least six consecutive months immediately preceding the day of the election;
  5. Are of the faith of the minority that established the separate school division; for example, if the separate school division was established for people of the Roman Catholic faith, then you must be of the Roman Catholic faith. However, if the Pope in Rome is recognized as the leader of your church, for example, Ukrainian Catholic, you are considered a member of the minority Catholic faith thereby becoming an “elector” for the Roman Catholic separate school board.
