Elections Canada – Official Information for the October 19th Federal Election

~~ Don’t forget – General Voting Day is tomorrow, Monday Oct 19th.  You may vote from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Gold River Community Centre. ~~

Suzanne Trevis gave some very good information in a comment on this post, so I wanted to share to everyone was aware:

“Another important thing people should know – you can not vote in a riding other than your own unless you arrange to do so BEFORE the advance poll gets underway (October 9). In the past, if you have been away from home and voting, you have been able to fill out a form saying you are voting outside of your home riding. This election you CAN NOT do that. If you are away from home after October 9 you will be out of luck. Make sure you are in the right area to vote and find your local polling station ahead of time. Make sure your friends and neighbours have a ride to the polls as well. And remember your ID!
