The Federal Election takes place today (Monday, October 21, 2019) from 8:30am to 8:30pm.
You will vote to elect a member of Parliament to represent you in the House of Commons. He or she will debate and pass laws on your behalf.
You can vote if:
- you are a Canadian citizen
- you are at least 18 years old on election day
- you can prove your identity and address
Where To Vote
Simply enter your postal code at http://elections.ca/ to find your polling station.
Where Time Can I Vote
Poll stations are open from 8:30am to 8:30pm. As long as you are in the building before the polls close, you’ll still be allowed to vote, even if there is a line-up.
Make sure to bring one piece of government-issued ID with your photo, name and address when you vote (a drivers license works best).
If you don’t have a drivers license, you can bring two pieces of ID. Both pieces must have your name, and one must also have your address. For example, your health card plus a utility bill. [ELECTIONS.CA]
