WINNIPEG -- Canadians head to the polls Monday to cast their ballot in the 2019 federal election, following a 40-day campaign across the country. Here is some important information about voting, courtesy of Elections Canada.
In Manitoba, polling stations are open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The hours of operation are also printed on your voter card and are available on the Elections Canada website.
Where do I vote?
You are assigned to a specific voting station based on your home address. If you’re a registered voter and have received a voter card, your polling station is listed on your voter card.
If are not registered to vote, you can still cast a ballot -- find out at which station to cast your ballot by visiting elections.ca.
What do I need to vote?
In order to vote, you must be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years old on voting day, and you must prove your identity and address.
There are multiple ways you can provide the proper identification in order to cast your ballot. If you are unsure what identification you will need, Elections Canada has provided a detailed list.
