Eager to vote? Advance polls may be for you

Cuyahoga County Board of Elections to open Oct. 8 for early in-person voting for Nov. 5 General Election

During the provincial election in April, voters could vote at any advance poll location or vote at any polling location on election day but Nyirfa said that is not the case for the federal election and every voter must vote at their specific location.

Those looking to cast their ballot ahead of the actual election will likely have a good chance to do so this year as the advance polls will open on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and will even be open Thanksgiving Monday. Vote at your assigned polling station from 9:00 a.m.to 9:00 p.m. from Friday, October 11th to Monday, October 14th.

Elections Canada spokesperson Leanne Nyirfa stresses that just because someone receives a voter card in the mail, it does not mean they're eligible to vote. Once the kit is mailed to you, the kit to you, your only way to vote in this federal election will be by mail.

Polls open at 9:30 a.m. on election day.

Elections Canada returning officer Geoff Collier said more than 300,000 people are hired across the country, including 900 in the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding.

Not sure if you're a registered voter?

A sign outside of a polling station in London. You will vote for a candidate in the riding where your place of ordinary residence is located.


All you need to do is find your advanced polling station by checking your voter information card, or by using Elections Canada's Voter Information Service.

Once you have your special ballot, write the first and last name of your chosen candidate on the ballot.

If you want to vote at your home away from where you are right now, you can do it via mail by applying here.

"You must be a Canadian citizen in order to vote so the best thing to do to help Elections Canada improve the list and correct the mistakes is to either go to an Elections Canada office and say, 'will you please remove me from the list, I'm not a Canadian.' Or you can phone", said Francoise Enguehard of Elections Canada.

You can also get involved by applying to work at the polls themselves.

Selfie enthusiasts hoping to snap a pic with their marked ballot are reminded that it is illegal to do so, as it violates the secrecy of the vote under the Canada Elections Act.
