The 2019 Canadian federal election is scheduled to take place on October 21, 2019

OTTAWA -- Polls will be open across the country on Monday. Here are few things to know about casting your ballot, courtesy of Elections Canada.

Poll times

Polls will be open for 12 hours on voting day, but vary by time zone.
Polls will be open 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Newfoundland Time, Atlantic Time and Central Time; 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time; 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Mountain Time and in Saskatchewan; and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Pacific Time. The hours will be printed on voter information cards, and are also available by checking elections.ca.

Voter cards and your identity

The address of assigned polling stations are available on the back of voter information cards. Voters can also check elections.ca or call 1-800-463-6868 for advance poll locations.
To vote, electors must prove their identity and address by either:

Showing their driver's licence or any other card issued by a Canadian government (federal, provincial/territorial or local) with their photo, name and current address.
Showing two pieces of identification that both have their name and at least one with a current address, for example a bank statement and voter card, or a utility bill and student ID. (A full list is available at elections.ca)
Declaring one's identity and address in writing, and having someone who knows the elector and is assigned to the same polling station to vouch for the voter's identity.

In the military?

Canadian Forces members can cast a ballot through ordinary voting channels if they want to.

Can you take a selfie?

Taking selfies or making a recording in voting stations is not allowed. Also, taking a picture of a marked ballot and posting it on social media is a violation of the secret ballot rules in the Canada Elections Act and therefore illegal.

If you're really keen on taking a photo of yourself and want to share it on social media, Elections Canada recommends doing it outside the polling station.

What if your polling station moves?

If a polling station has to move on election day, voters will be informed through local media, if they contact Elections Canada, or will be directed by election workers posted at the old polling station.

Face coverings

Voters with a face-covering may remove it to verify their identity and residence with an elections officer, but may also make a declaration that they are qualified to vote if they don't wish to remove the covering.

Does my employer have to give me time to vote?

The elections law requires that every eligible voter have three consecutive hours available to vote. Employers must give you the time off, under threat of fine or jail time, if your working hours don't permit a three-hour window. For instance, if the polls are open between 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and you work 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., your employer could let you show up late or leave early to have three hours to vote, but cannot deduct any pay for the time.
