Travelling this weekend?

If you are travelling this weekend and won’t be home on election day, you can still vote. All early voting locations throughout the province are open on Saturday for you to vote. When you arrive at a poll outside of your home electoral district, the election officer will print a ballot with the names of the candidates in your home electoral district. It’s that easy.

Voting during an election is by secret ballot. Should you require assistance casting your vote, you can have someone come behind the screen with you. This person can be a friend, child, grandchild, brother, sister, spouse, parent, grandparent, or caregiver. You and the person assisting you to vote will be asked to make a declaration before you cast your ballot. If you would prefer, an election official can help you cast your ballot.
