How to vote in Clearwater

Election day is around the corner and advance voting opens this weekend, with your first chance to vote to come Oct. 11.

Advance voting for the federal election will be open from Oct. 11, 12, 13 and 14 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Dutch Lake Community Centre (DLCC) multi-purpose room, located at 209 Dutch Lake Rd.

General election day is Oct. 21 where voters can cast their ballots from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the DLCC gym.

Voters must be 18 years old and must bring identification that proves their address.

One option is to bring your driver’s license or any other card issued by a Canadian government that includes your photo, name and current address.

Another option is to bring two pieces of ID that have your name, and at least one must have your current address —options include your band membership card, birth certificate, credit card statement, health card, income tax assessment, Canadian passport and utility bill.

Visit elections.ca for more information about which forms of ID are accepted.

A third option if you don’t have ID is to declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who knows you and who is assigned to your polling station vouch for you.

The voucher must be able to prove their identity and address.
