It’s election day!  Well, sort-of.

Today is the first day that you can actually vote in Windsor’s Fall Municipal Election; and by that same token, the first date of “Advanced Voting” season.

And what neater place is there to vote at than at Devonshire Mall?  (Personally, I’m an election geek who would LOVE to vote at City Hall)

Shop-n-Vote is the City of Windsor’s first ever partnership with a local shopping centre to offer a convenient “buy/browse/eat” and “exercise your civic duties” type of deal.

From 9 this morning ’till 6 this evening, you can literally walk to the big promenade outside The Bay and vote (if you feel ready this early in October) for:

  • ONE city councillor in your ward
  • ONE mayor
  • school board trustees

Think perhaps you don’t qualify for “advanced voting”?  The good news:  anyone who is an eligible voter in Windsor can head to the mall today and vote.

The details:

There are no special requirements to vote at an advance poll. Any eligible voter can vote at any one of the six stations across the city. Residents should bring their voter notification cards to the voting station, and they must bring identification showing name, signature and qualifying address under this year’s new rule.

Advanced Voting Locations:

  • October 9, 2010: Devonshire Mall
    (3100 Howard Ave – 9:00am to 6:00pm)
  • October 12, 2010: South Windsor Recreation Complex
    (2555 Pulford – 10:00am to 8:00pm)
  • October 13, 2010: College Avenue Community Centre
    (3325 College Ave – 10:00am to 8:00pm)
  • October 14, 2010: St. Angela Merici Church Hall
    (750 Erie Street East – 10:00am to 8:00pm)
  • October 15, 2010: Most Precious Blood Church
    (1947 Meldrum Ave – 10:00am to 8:00pm)
  • October 16, 2010: WFCU Centre
    (8787 McHugh – 10:00am to 8:00pm)

Advanced voting is great if you’ve made up your mind already, can’t be at your regular polling station on the 25th or need the convenience of voting in advance.

Regular “Election Day” is the 25th of October.

Happy voting!
