Due to recent election law changes, many people don’t realise that they can be casting their vote today.

With proof of your name and your address, like a driver’s license or provincial ID card, any eligible Canadian can vote in an Elections Canada office.

Skeena – Bulkley Valley candidate Nathan Cullen encourages everyone to practise their democratic right.

“It’s easiest and best done if people come out early to the advanced polls,” he says, “we’ll help people vote regardless of how they’re voting. we have all the rules in place, we know exactly how to get it done, and we want to make sure as many people vote as possible.”

Those eligible can vote at their designated Elections office until October 13th. Offices are open 7 days a week.
