Those who didn’t take advantage of advance voting for the federal election will be able to vote on election day Monday starting at 7 a.m. Polling stations will be open until 7 p.m.
In order to vote on Monday there are three options to prove ones identity and address. Government issued ID such as a drivers licence, provincial or territorial ID card, or any other government card with a photo, name, and address will be accepted.
If that’s not an option then Elections Canada will accept two pieces of ID including, but not limited to a health card, passport, bank statement, or credit card statement. At least one of the two pieces must show your current address.
The third option consists of taking an oath if your ID does not have your current address. Two pieces of ID will be needed that indicate your name, and you will need to be accompanied by someone who will attest to your address. The individual will need to show proof of identity and address, be registered in the same polling station, and attest for only one person.

Election coverage on Energeticcity.ca will begin at 4 p.m. Monday.
