Where and when to vote in 100 Mile House

Voters must be 18 years old and must bring identification that proves their address

Election day is around the corner and advance voting opens this weekend, with your first chance to vote to come Friday, Oct. 11.

Advance voting for the federal election will be open from Oct. 11, 12, 13 and 14 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at these two locations only: Creekside Seniors’ Centre at 501 Cedar Ave or at the Elections Canada office located in the basement of the MSM Law LLP Lawyers and Notary Public building at 438 Birch Ave, directly across from the Canada Post office.

Your Voter Information Card, which should have come in the mail by now, will specify at which poll you should vote.

Voters must be 18 years old and must bring identification that proves their address.

One option is to bring your driver’s licence or any other card issued by a Canadian government that includes your photo, name and current address.

Another option is to bring two pieces of ID that have your name, and at least one must have your current address —options include your band membership card, birth certificate, credit card statement, health card, income tax assessment, Canadian passport and utility bill.

Visit elections.ca for more information about which forms of ID are accepted.

A third option if you don’t have ID is to declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who knows you and who is assigned to your polling station vouch for you.

The voucher must be able to prove their identity and address.
