Today is election day. 

Here are some tips on getting to the polls:

Hours

Election Day hours are between the hours of 10am and 8pm.

Leaving Work to Vote

An elector whose hours of employment are such that he or she would not otherwise have three consecutive hours to vote on voting day is entitled to be absent from work for as long as is necessary to allow that time.

Where do I vote?

Check your voter notification card, or visit the online Voting Station Locator to find your voting station for Election Day, as well as a complete list of advance voting locations.

Free Transit to Vote

If you are an eligible voter, you may ride the bus for free when you go to vote. Present your Voter Notification Card to the bus driver on your way to and from voting.

Parking

Each voting station was selected to ensure that there will be adequate parking, washroom facilities, and wheelchair accessibility.

How do I vote?

Step 1: When you arrive at your voting station, you will receive a paper ballot in a privacy folder from the Deputy Returning Officer according to your school support (as shown on the voters’ list) and be directed to a voting booth to mark your ballot.

Step 2: Use the marking pen at the voting booth to fill in the oval next to the candidate(s) of your choice for each office listed on the ballot.

Step 3: Once you are done voting, place the ballot back in the privacy folder supplied to you with the Deputy Returning Officers’ initials showing, and bring it to the Tabulating Officer who will insert the ballot into the vote tabulator to record your vote. Once read, the vote tabulator will place the ballot into the ballot box.
