Advance polls for federal election open Friday

Advance polls for federal election open Friday”

Finally, for Canadian citizens overseas, or those who would simply rather tackle the entire process from home, you can vote by mail, provided you apply to do so online or at an Elections Canada office by 3:00 p.m.

It's your chance to vote early at an advance poll in the federal election.

On Election Day, supervisors will show up at their stations at 5 a.m., with poll workers following no later than 6 a.m. Voters will start filing in an hour later, at 7 a.m.

If you don't have a driver's licence, you'll need two pieces of ID, which can include passports, blood donor cards, birth certificates, band memberships and so on, and failing that, you can still vote if you can get someone to vouch for you. Examples: Voter information card and bank statement, or utility bill and student ID card. Polls will be open for 12 hours, but hours vary by province. Both must have your name and at least one much have your current address.

"Each of those polling stations will have two people at it, plus you have to have information officers, registration officers, people who help people come in, people who help people find their registration and people who supervise the entire operation", Colliers said.

The Elections Canada office opened in Sahali Mall one hour after the writ dropped on September 11, anticipating the official start to the election as much as the rest of the country. But that person must be able to prove their own identity and address.

Voting at an Elections Canada office is different than voting on election day or advance polling days. You will vote using the special ballot process (see below).

From Oct. 28 to November 1, in-person voting will be from 8 a.m.to 7 p.m. There are more than 115 campuses in Canada where you can register and vote in the federal election. So, we have prepared for that, and ordered additional ballots.

Instead of three advance polling days, this election there are four.

If you have not received one, "there could be numerous reasons", said Grenier.

Byers said the new ballot slips will still need to be counted by scanning machine, but that the margin of error goes down without having to fill in an oval by pen to vote.
