Big River First Nation Triples Voter Turnout

Numbers from the October 19 federal election indicated that voters at Big River First Nation in Saskatchewan cast 625 ballots, triple the number compared with the 2011 election. Factors credited with this increase include social media, a local candidate, and a first time on reserve polling station. In 2011, voters had to travel to Debden, 19 kilometres away to cast their ballot.
