Gatineau, Thursday, October 5, 2017

  • Elections Canada has mailed a reminder brochure to each household in Lac-Saint-Jean (Quebec) and Sturgeon River–Parkland (Alberta), electoral districts where by-elections are taking place.
  • The reminder brochure tells electors that if they have not received a voter information card showing their correct name and address, they should take steps to register or update their registration.
  • Before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 17, electors can update their address using Elections Canada's online voter registration service. Or, they can register or update their registration at their local Elections Canada office:
  • Electors who wish to vote at advance polls can register at their assigned advance polling place just before they vote. Advance polls are open from Friday, October 13, to Monday, October 16, from noon to 8:00 p.m.
  • Electors who have not registered before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 17, may register at their assigned polling place on election day just before they vote.
