Of course, this weekend is also Thanksgiving Weekend here in Canada! Traditionally, it’s a time when many post-secondary students who attend school away from their family home return to visit the parents (and look up high school crushes).
If you’re a student, and are registered to vote at your parents’ address (which is the case if your Voter Information Card arrived there), this offers an opportunity to vote while you’re visiting family and high school friends. The address of your hometown’s advance polling place should be on your Voter Information Card.
If you are registered to vote at your student house or residence, you can also vote in advance polls, or on election day, on campus or nearby. (Check your Voter Information Card or contact Elections Canada for details.)
Here’s a handy infographic we developed for students:
