Advance voting this Thanksgiving weekend! Information you need to know.

It’s time to get your vote on and what better way to show thanks this weekend, than voting? Hey, it might just be the perfect way to start or end your Thanksgiving dinner- load up the friends and family and vote together. 😀

Advance voting opened today at noon, and carries through the entire weekend, including Monday. 

There are four advance voting days. Polls are open from noon to 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday, October 9
  • Saturday, October 10
  • Sunday, October 11
  • Monday, October 12

Your voter information card tells you the address of your advance polling place. You can also find it in the Voter Information Service.

Elections Canada is also sharing this information online and I urge each of you to take this number with you, or enter it into your cell phone. Share it with your neighbours,friends and family to ensure we all have the resources we need to get those votes counted.


If you are on twitter, you can follow Elections Canada at @Elections_CanE  or

Not sure where you can vote? You can find that information at the following link:

And last but not least, if you are not registered to vote yet, you can actually register right at the polling station! Just make sure you bring the proper identification from the following list:



  1. I voted yesterday, Laila, and am making myself available to drive others on election day. The long line-up I experienced yesterday just tells me that people have had enough of the dictatorial Harper government and are ready for change. i heard no complaints about the long wait. on the contrary, voters seemed to be in an almost festive mood.


    • “voters seemed to be in a festive mood”

      Yes, now is their chance to turf Harper out – what most reasonable people have been waiting for.


    • Way to go! And thank you for your service to help others get their votes out too. 🙂 Festive voters? I like that. People should be festive when they vote regardless of who they are voting for.

      We keep forgetting how there are people right now, fighting for the same right people here take for granted.
