Advance election polls to open Friday

Get ready to mark your ballot

Advance voting for the federal election will be held Friday to Monday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Voters at advance polls can only vote at their assigned polling station, which is different from the provincial election that was held in the spring, when they could vote at any polling station.

People can find the address of their assigned polling station on the back of their voter information card, by visiting elections.ca, or by calling 1-800-463-6868.

People must prove their identity and address in order to vote. The list of accepted ID is online at elections.ca.

Other advance voting options include voting at any Elections Canada office, or by mail using the special ballot process.
