Early Voting Protocols Ready in Putnam County

Early Voting Protocols Ready in Putnam County

If you already know who you want to vote for in the upcoming election, you can cast your ballot early starting this Friday. "Advance polls will be open for longer hours, and there will be more advance polling stations to better serve Canadians".

Voter Registration and Absentee Ballot Application forms are available from the Registrar of Voters' Office in City Hall from 8:30 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Once the kit is mailed to you, the kit to you, your only way to vote in this federal election will be by mail. "We will be open that day until 5 p.m.", Wellhausen added.

For information on acceptable identification, where to vote and other details, visit, the Elections Canada website. But make sure you check a variety of sources - the internet is an fantastic way to acquire information, but you still have to be on guard for fake news.

There are more than 500 Elections Canada offices open across Canada.

How you choose to vote is up to you.

If the government failed to take such actions, they would be sending out a message that they did not put children first, she said. Children are explicitly targeted with sophisticated techniques.

There are also many candidates on the ballot throughout the county.

Bledi says the efforts underway are meant to get accustomed to electronic poll books as well as the early voting - which is set to begin October 26 and last over nine days. All you need to do is bring ID to vote. If you've recently moved, you can make sure you're registered under the correct address and can also check to see where your polling station is and when advance polling takes place in your riding.

Upon being hired and trained - so far in the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo riding, 700 of the 900 needed staff have been employed - the Elections Canada team heads into the Sahali Mall office to pick up their ballot boxes and ballots for their respective locations.

Alternatively, individuals can drop off their advance vote at any Elections Canada office across the country, or mail it to the organization using a special ballot process outlined here. Instead, there is a blank space for you to write the name of the candidate you're voting for. Your ballot will then be counted as a "spoiled ballot" and will be kept secret.

You can also get involved by applying to work at the polls themselves. And you can't control snail mail...
