Time off for voting
Today is election day in Calgary. It is important to note that under the Election Act in Alberta, an employee who is qualified to vote shall be allowed three consecutive hours for the purpose of casting a vote. Since polls are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. we believe most faculty and staff will be able to get to the polls outside of regular working hours. That said, faculty and staff who normally work beyond 5 p.m. and start prior to 1 p.m. will be afforded the appropriate amount of time to cast their ballot.

Open Access Week
Check out Libraries and Cultural Resources' presentations, workshops, and numerous displays during Open Access Week Oct. 18-22.

The annual Recent Works exhibition of prints by senior and graduate printmaking students runs at the Little Gallery in the art department from Oct. 18-22. Senior printmaking students are also selling their work on the sixth floor of the Arts Parkade from 11-1 p.m.
