Media at polling places

Some polling places are more suitable for filming because they are easier to access. Journalists are invited to contact Media Relations staff in advance (1-877-877-9515 or media@elections.ca) to discuss the locations most suitable for filming and to make arrangements.

During a general election

Media who wish to participate in a photo opportunity with the leaders of registered political parties and/or candidates competing in the same electoral district as the leaders may apply for advance authorization to host a pool or to access images from a pool. They must apply at least ten days before election day.
