If you're voting in the federal election, here's everything you need to know before heading to the polls

Tomorrow is the federal election and for those who did not participate in the advance polling days or did not register to vote by mail, here is everything you need to know.

To cast your ballot tomorrow, you must be a Canadian citizen and be 18 as of tomorrow.

Elections Canada explains that voting hours are broken down according to the time zones, so BC’s polling stations are open from 7 am to 7 pm tomorrow.

If you choose to hit the polls tomorrow, be sure to check your voter information card for your poll number, the time and the address of where you’re able to vote (be sure to look under “election day”).

Remember that public health regulation will be in place, such as physical distancing and mask wearing.

Don’t forget to bring the proper ID that is required at the polls.

People have three options to prove their identity and address:

  1. Driver’s license or any other card issued by a Canadian government (federal, provincial/territorial or local) – it must have your picture, name and current address.

  2. Show two pieces of ID – both must have your name and at least one must have your current address (i.e., voter information card + bank statement or a utility bill + student ID).

  3. Declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who can vouch for you – They must be able to prove their own identity and address, be at the same polling station as you and they can only vouch for one person.

Here is the full list of accepted secondary ID if you chose to use option two to prove your identity and address:
