Residents who live west and north of Edmonton are voting for politicians at the municipal and federal levels within a week of each other next month.

Alberta municipal elections are set for Oct. 16. But for residents just outside of Edmonton, there is a federal by-election for the riding of Sturgeon River-Parkland a week later on Oct. 23.

Rona Ambrose was the long-time Member of Pariament, but announced in July she was stepping down after 13 years.
