Appleby area Advanced Polls open October 9-12

If you're going to be away from the Appleby Line area during the October 19 election you can vote at an advanced poll.

Advanced polls will be open from Friday October 9 – Thanksgiving Monday October 12 noon – 8 p.m. at either Appleby United Church or Ascension School depending on you address.

You can also vote in person at the Elections Canada Burlington office at Port Nelson United Church, 3132 South Dr, before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13. To vote, you must show proof of identity and address.

The list of accepted pieces of identification can be seen here. Some identification pieces used at provincial and municipal elections may not meet federal election requirements. Don't take pictures when you're voting because it's a federal offense with fines up to $50,000 and/or five years in prison.

This election has been one of the longest on record stretching more than two months. The average has been about a month. Remember it's your right to vote so take advantage of it. Many people around the world can't.
