Elections Canada tips to make voting easy

Election day info to know

Here's what you need to know as Canadians go to the polls in today's federal election:

Elections Canada reminds that voters must cast their ballot at their assigned polling station.

To find out where to vote, check your voter information card, visit elections.ca or call 1-800-463?6868. 

Every poll across the country is open for 12 hours. Voting hours are staggered, so that most results are available around the same time on election night. Polls in B.C. are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

To vote, electors must be registered. Those who are not registered can register at their polling station when they go to vote.

Unregistered electors can enter their information online, print a pre-filled registration certificate, and bring it with them for faster service at the polls. 

Bring your voter information card with you, along with ID, to make the voting process easier. 

You must prove your identity and address.

Preliminary results will be published on elections.ca as soon as they become available, and we'll be live on Castanet as soon as polls close with up to the minute coverage as the numbers come in.
