Advance voting in the provincial election opens today across the province.

Manitobans unable to vote on October 4 can cast their ballot early at numerous locations until Saturday, October 1.

There are approximately 300 advance voting locations throughout the province, including every returning office, as well as shopping malls, university campuses and the Winnipeg airport.

To be eligible to vote, you must be a Canadian citizen at least 18-years-old age on or before election day, and must have resided in Manitoba for at least six months.

Voters are required to show one piece of government-issued photo identification (such as a driver’s licence) or two other documents with their name. Having your enumeration record will also be helpful.

Advance polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Sunday, when polls will be open from noon to 6 p.m.
