Are there any other options?

"We will try to make sure that there is no eligible voter who will not go to the polling station to vote". A person can vouch for only one person (except in long-term care institutions). Vote at your assigned polling station from 9:00 a.m.to 9:00 p.m. from Friday, October 11th to Monday, October 14th.

In May of this year, Elections Canada said it would eliminate 103,000 people from the register because they are not Canadian citizens. You can also register in person when you go to the polls on election day or in the advance polls running October 11 to 14. "All you do is enter your postal code and it will tell you where your voting location is for advance polls", she said.

You can also get involved by applying to work at the polls themselves. You will vote using the special ballot process (see below). You can check if you're registered or update your address online at Elections Canada. It could happen that my neighbor across the street could vote at a different polling station then me.

In a few of the questions we received, there was some confusion about exactly who you vote for in this election. To count your vote, Elections Canada needs to receive your marked ballot by election day on Monday, October 21, 2019, 6:00 p.m. ET. Results will be called in by phone to the office, where they will be provided to media and reported by computer to Elections Canada's central office.

How do I register to vote?

And you probably already know this already, but it's worth repeating: Canadians don't vote directly for a prime minister. You will vote for a candidate in the riding where your place of ordinary residence is located.

He added that such special emphasis aims to prevent any dispute over advance voting.

Like many Canadians living overseas, access to the internet is also extremely important for Hendy's participation, as he plans to watch the upcoming debates to help come to a decision. Instead, there is a blank space for you to write the name of the candidate you're voting for.

Elections Canada says it tries to set up polling stations as close as possible to voters.
