ELECTION 2015: Voter Info Cards are in the mail

Cloverdale-Langley City: Elections Canada asks voters to look for voter information cards they'll need to find their polling station.

Voters who want to participate in the federal election are advised to check their mail closely over the next 10 days.

With the federal election fast approaching, millions of personalized Voter Information Cards have gone out today (Sept. 23) to registered voters’ homes across B.C., including here in Cloverdale.

Elections Canada says the cards contain important, personalized polling location information: the voter’s poll number and location for election day Oct. 19, and for the advanced polling days on Oct. 9-12.

Unlike in B.C. provincial elections, where voters can cast their ballot at any polling station, the federal election requires voters to use the polling station assigned to them.

When voters receive their VIC, they should check their information to ensure it’s accurate. Voters who haven’t received their card in the mail by Oct. 1 – or whose card shows the wrong address – can register or update their current address online at www.elections.ca where they can use the voter information service tool.

Alternately, voters can drop by a local Elections Canada office in person. Visit www.elections.ca for more information, or call a national toll free line at 1-800-463-6868.

Elections Canada offices will be open seven days a week. Voters may vote up to Oct. 13 (6 p.m.) at an Elections Canada office using a special ballot.
