People will have the option to vote in three locations: At the Mike’s Oilfield Services Fieldhouse or Remax Fieldhouse in Servus Sports Centre, The Wildrose Pavilion at the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association, and, weather permitting, a drive-thru voting at Bud Miller Park, weather permitting.
