Election day is May 2 and polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Rossland Secondary School in Rossland (2190 Jubilee), and at Warfield Community Hall in Warfield (900 Schofield).

Voters are each assigned a particular polling station — to find out where to go, use the contact information below.

To vote, you must be a Canadian citizen and at least 18 years old. You must also bring ID to the polling station.

There are several options. The first is to bring a single piece of government-issued photo identification with your name and address, like your driver’s licence.

The second is to bring two pieces of authorized identification with your name, and one of which shows your address — a health card and a hydro bill, for example.

The third option is to take an oath and bring along a verified elector from the same polling division as you — someone who knows you and can vouch for you, like a neighbour or roommate. This person can only vouch for one person.

If you have not received a “voter information card” in the mail, are unsure if you are registered to vote, or are unsure which polling station to go to, visit www.elections.ca or call 1-866-546-7619.
