How do I Vote?

How do you vote? It’s easy as 1, 2, 3.

NUMBER 1: Make sure you are registered to Vote

If you do not receive a Voting Information Card between April 11th and April 15th, all you have to do is contact Catherine Nunn, the Halifax returning officer at:

1-866-204-8445

You can also register the day of the election just before you vote. But all of you that like to avoid line-ups and delays can pre-register.

NUMBER 2: Find out where your polling station is

Voting polling stations are based on your specific postal code. You should receive a card in the mail with the polling station closest to you.  If not, that means:

a) you aren’t registered, so proceed back to step 1

b) you are registered, and know it, but somehow they forgot you.  In which case, to find out where to vote simply enter your postal code in the space provided at:

http://www.elections.ca/scripts/pss/voting.aspx?L=e&ED=12004&EV=34&EV_TYPE=1&PC=&Prov=NS&ProvID=12&MapID=&QID=3&PageID=31&TPageID=

Or go to http://www.elections.ca > Voter Information System > Where do I vote?

FOR EXAMPLE:

For those of you with the postal code B3H 1Y3, you vote at Spring Garden Terrace Apartments from 8:30am to 8:30 pm on Monday, May 2nd, 2011

NUMBER 3: Vote on Election Day May 2nd, 2011 from 8:30 am to 8:30pm at your polling station

Make sure you have with you a government issued ID that includes your photo, name, and address (anything that will get you into a bar will work), and any document that confirms the address and name (e.g. a phone bill)

For all of you keeners out there or those of you that will be leaving Halifax before election day, you can vote in advance on April 22rd, 23rd, or 25th – for more information on advanced polling visit the Elections Canada Voter Information Service at www.elections.ca
