Vote at additional service points

To give electors another voting option, Elections Canada is working with community leaders to set up additional service points. These will be open on select dates across the country. Any elector can register and vote by special ballot at these service points.

Vote on campus

Elections Canada offices will be open on around 115 campuses across the country between Saturday, October 5 and Wednesday, October 9.

Electors who vote on a campus will use the special ballot process. As with any other way to vote, they will cast a ballot for a candidate in their home riding, even if the Elections Canada office is in a different riding.
