Today rural municipal ratepayers will be going to the polls to vote for RM council representatives. The results will be posted on the SARM website as soon as the polls close and the votes are counted. Results can be viewed at http://elections.sarm.ca/.                             

In 2014, SARM launched a real-time, online reporting tool for rural municipalities to publicly post their candidates and results of the rural municipal elections. RMs have published their candidates’ names for ratepayers and the public to view ahead of the polls. On the election night, rural administrators can post unofficial results that will be visible to the public and media immediately. 

“This online reporting tool makes election results available almost immediately to ratepayers, municipalities, the media and other stake holders, saving administrators’ time by offering a huge convenience to people seeking the information” said SARM President Ray Orb. “I am pleased that SARM has continued to provide this valuable service.”

SARM provide services in the best interests of its members and champions the value of rural Saskatchewan.
