Winnipeg residents living in Tuxedo will head to the polls today to pick a new representative for their riding. 

The seat was left open after former Manitoba premier Heather Stefanson stepped down from politics. Her last day was May 6.  

Since its creation in 1981, the Tuxedo constituency has only been held by two people Stefanson and former premier, Gary Filmon. 

Lawyer Lawrence Pinsky is running for the Conservatives, the New Democrats have nominated registered nurse Carla Compton, the Liberals have nominated Jamie Pfau and Janine Gibson is running for the Green Party.

Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To be eligible to vote, individuals must:

  • Be a Canadian citizen
  • Be at least 18 years old on election day
  • Have lived in Manitoba for at least six months immediately before election day
  • Live in the Tuxedo electoral division

Everyone must show ID to vote, either one piece of government-issued photo ID with your current address (such as a driver's license) or two others. The voter information card can be used as one of the two pieces of ID.  

Unofficial results will be posted on Elections Manitoba's website once they become available after the polls close. Official results as verified by the returning officer will be announced on Friday, June 21 in the Tuxedo Local Election Office and posted online.
