As we prepare for results of the 2016 civic election across Saskatchewan, here is a look at the participation rate in Saskatoon four years ago.
There were 180,411 eligible voters in 2012, with 66-thousand-497 voting in the civic election. That's just under 37 per cent participation. The Ward with the highest participation rate four years ago was Ward 7 in the city's southeast, at 48 per cent. The lowest participation rate at 25 per cent was Ward 2, which is across the river from Ward 7 on the southwest side of Saskatoon.
