What’s next weekend? Yes, it’s Thanksgiving, but it’s also Advance Polling Days from Friday, 9 October to Monday, 12 October 2015!

The (un)Fair Elections Act has introduced more stringent requirements for ID at the polling stations. I expect that on election day (Monday, 19 October 2015!) it will take longer to process voter registrations. You can avoid the lineups by voting in the Advance Polls.

Make sure you have the ID required to vote: One piece of government ID with your picture, name and address; or two pieces of ID with your name, and at least one with an address; or show two pieces of ID with your name, take an oath, and have someone already registered attest to your identity.

Remember that thanks to the (un)Fair Elections Act your voter registration card is no longer accepted as ID, and you can no longer have a friend or family member vouch for your identity. The list of acceptable ID is on the Elections Canada site at ID to vote.
