To vote, you must be a Canadian citizen and be 18 years of age or older on polling day.
Elections Canada is trying to make sure that EVERYONE who is eligible to vote gets a chance to voice their opinion on OR before election day of January 23. YOUR VOTE does count!
Your vote helps the party and the person you support. Every party gets an annual revenue based on the number of votes it obtains during each election. Every candidate is eligible for some federal funding based on the level of support they obtain from their riding. Therefore YOUR VOTE is important financially to both the party and the candidate you support. But most importantly, your vote goes towards helping send someone to Parliament Hill in Ottawa to represent our riding!! So be sure to cast your ballot on OR before January 23!
VOTE BY MAIL by calling 1-866-239-2831 (the Elections Canada office in Kenora) to get your mail-in ballot sent to you. You must complete the necessary forms and send them in before January 17 to be able to vote by mail. These forms are also available on-line at http://www.elections.ca
ADVANCE VOTING DAYS - January 13, 14 and 16 - If you are travelling to or through Sioux Lookout on any of these days, everyone in the Kenora Riding is able to cast their vote on any of these days at the Sioux Lookout Recreation Centre (85 King Street).

VOTE IN PERSON before January 17 in KENORA at the local Elections Canada office at the B.D.C. Building, 302-227 Second Street South (open 7 days a week).
ON ELECTION DAY (January 23), every eligible voter is entitled to walk into any polling station in your riding, complete an application to vote and cast your ballot on that day.
