While not all Canadians residing overseas will cast ballots, chief electoral officer Stéphane Perrault estimated last month that 30,000 citizens outside of Canada would vote in the coming election, up from nearly 11,000 in the 2015 election.

Election day is Monday, October 21st.

Advance polling stations will open at 9 a.m. through 9 p.m.

Voters can also register to vote by mail at Elections Canada offices in North Vancouver and West Vancouver until October 15. And you must live in the Prince Albert riding to vote here. You must prove your identity and address to register. There's a long list of accepted documentation from which to choose.

On the final day of the program almost as many people voted as did in the entirety of the initiative in 2015. Your gender expression or the sex indicated on your ID has no bearing on your right to vote. Voters can also register to vote by mail at Elections Canada offices in until October 15.

The qualification for voting in an election is simple.

The volunteers at your polling station will hand you a ballot and guide you through the process.

Before you go to vote, remember that you need to register! You can use any mark as long as it clearly indicates one choice.

Voters must bring identification that verifies their name and address.

There are tools and services to facilitate voting for those with disabilities. This time there were Vote on Campus stations set up at 119 locations. If your hours don't allow that time, your employer must give you time off, and they are not allowed to impose a penalty or dock your pay.

Elections Canada says electors have other options when it comes to advance voting.

Across the country, Elections Canada hires 300,000 people on election day. You can look up your local election day polling station by entering your postal code here.

The general voting day is October 21.

In the 2015 federal election, 23.2 per cent of ballots were cast in Nanaimo-Ladysmith ahead of general voting day.
