Municipal Election·Calgary Ward 10

Andre Chabot re-elected in Ward 10

Ward 10 had the lowest voter turnout in 2010. So the question is will there be an issue this time that sparks greater interest?

Riding had lowest voter turnout in 2010 election

Andre Chabot has reclaimed his seat in Ward 10.

Chabot has owned this ethnically diverse part of town since he won a byelection here in 2005 after the infamous Ward 10 vote scandal of 2004. He faced two challengers this time with Nargis Dossa and Numan Elhussein.

This riding had the lowest voter turnout in 2010, but we'll have to wait for official numbers to see if electors this time had greater interest.
