Advance polling expanded as early voting grows in popularity

Advance polls will take place on October 11, 12, 13 and 14 from 9 a.m.to 9 p.m.

You then fold your ballot and give it back to the voting officer who will put your ballot in the box.

Any voter who is unable to get to the polls on Election Day may vote by absentee ballot during regular Election Commission office hours, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m., or may request to have an absentee ballot application mailed to their home address by calling the Election Commission office. And you must live in the Prince Albert riding to vote here.

Elections Canada is not accepting ballots it receives later than 6 p.m. on October 21.

You can also register in person by visiting your closest Elections Canada office!

Votes from overseas will be counted in ridings of their last permanent address.

There are tools and services to facilitate voting for those with disabilities.

Elections Canada set up offices at the University of Toronto's Hart House, Aviva Centre next to York University and Ryerson's student centre. The McGill University post-doctoral fellow suggests the act of voting should line up with citizens' interests and their sense of public duty if they are to be fully engaged in the process.

Voter turnout in the 2015 federal election was 68.5 per cent, the highest turnout since 1993.

According to Elections Canada the total turnout as of October 8 was 45,000 and then by October 9 another 66,300 electors had voted.
