Today is Election Day in Canada.  As you head to the polls today to vote in Canada’s 41st General Election, here is a few things you need to know:

Polls in Windsor and Essex County are open from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm

You will need to bring you registration card which was mailed to you.  This card tells you were to vote.

You will need to show:

One original piece of identification with your photo, name and address (Such as a Driver’s License) It must be issued by a government agency.

If you do not have the above, then you can show two original pieces of authorized identification (Such as a health card  or a hydro bill)  Both of these pieces must have your name and one must also have your address.

If you cannot do the above two mentioned options, then you can take an oath and have an elector (roommate or a neighbour) who knows you vouch for you.   This person must have authorized identification and their name must appear on the list of electors in the same polling division as you. This person can only vouch for one person and the person who is vouched for cannot vouch for another elector.

For more information or to find out where you vote, visit the Elections Canada website.
