Ways to Vote (in American Sign Language)
NARRATOR (voice over):
A federal election is coming up …
It's on Monday, October 19.
Did you know there are 4 different ways to vote? Choose the one that's convenient for you.
- You can vote at your polling place on election day, Monday, October 19. Your polling place will be open for 12 hours.
- Or, if it's more convenient for you, you can vote on one of the four advance voting days. Advance polling places will be open from noon to 8 p.m., from Friday, October 9 to Monday, October 12.
For the address and hours of your polling places, check your voter information card. Or go to elections.ca and type your postal code into our voter information service.
- You can also vote in person at any Elections Canada office across Canada. After the election is called, offices are open 7 days a week. Check elections.ca to find an office near you.
Go there to vote any day until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13.
- You can also vote by mail.
After the election is called, apply online at elections.ca. Don't wait! To vote this way, your application must reach us by 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13. If you can't apply online, call Elections Canada. We'll be happy to help.
When you apply, Elections Canada will send you a voting kit with a ballot and instructions. Mark your ballot and return it by the election day deadline.
Remember: Once you've applied to vote by mail, that's the only way you can vote.
