Travellers Reminded to Register as Absentee Voters

September 2, 2011 7:24 AM | News

Elections Manitoba is reminding travellers and students abroad to register as absentee voters in preparation for the October 4 election.

If you’ll be away from home on election day, you can still vote at advance polls from September 24 to October 1.

To qualify as an absentee voter on the 4th, you must be a Canadian citizen at least 18-years-old, have resided in Manitoba for at least six months and intend to be away for no more than six months.

The time restriction does not apply to members of the Canadian Forces, students attending school outside Manitoba, individuals working with the Manitoba or Canadian government or anyone living with people who meet these conditions

Applications for absentee voting are available at ElectionsManitoba.ca or at your local returning office.
