Gatineau, Tuesday, September 8, 2015

For the federal election now underway, electors can choose the voting option that best suits their schedule. They can vote:

"I encourage Canadians to look at the different voting options and choose the one that works best for them," says Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand. "Whether you vote at the regular or advance polls, in person at an Elections Canada office or by mail, there's an option that's right for you."

Elections Canada is an independent body set up by Parliament.
