Elections Canada adding additional voting options for Jewish voters

Elections Canada announced recently that it will be setting up additional service points (ASPs) to provide more voting options for Jewish people who would have had difficulty finding time to vote in the available times and locations. Elections Canada selected the new ASPs after consulting with Jewish community leaders to find times and locations that made sense for their communities. According to the website, anyone can vote at an ASP by special ballot on select dates across the country. All you need to do is bring ID to vote.

Services at Elections Canada offices remain available for those who are not able to vote at additional service points. There are over 500 Elections Canada offices open across Canada. Electors can vote at any one of them before Tuesday, October 15, 6:00 p.m. Electors will vote using the special ballot process.

Special ballots are different than regular ballots. There is no list of candidates, only a blank space to write in a name. Make sure to bring a voter information card and piece of accepted ID.

For information on ASPs near you, candidates in your riding and accepted forms of ID, visit elections.ca.

So far ASPs are only available in Toronto, but ASPs will be available in Ottawa, Edmonton and Vancouver as well, with more to be confirmed.
