Advance polling open for four days, starting Sept. 10

Electors have a few choices for voting ahead of federal election day

Agassiz-Harrison voters can now cast their ballots early in the federal election.

Advance voting continues on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Sept. 11-13) from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Electors must vote only at their assigned polling place. This is different from the process in some provincial elections, where electors can vote at any polling location.

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

To vote, electors must prove their identity and address. The list of accepted ID can be found online.

Residents can also vote by mail using the special ballot process. The deadline to apply to vote by special ballot is Tuesday, Sept. 14, and the marked ballot must be returned by election day – Monday, Sept. 20.

Visit the Elections Canada website to apply to vote by mail or call 1-866-499-8007.

Elections Canada says that all polling stations will follow COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
