(Every poll across the country is open for 12 hours on election day, but the hours are staggered so polls in different parts of the country open and close at slightly different times.)

Voters can find the location of their polling station by checking their voter ID cards.

Those who aren’t registered or don’t have a card can find their polling station by checking online at elections.ca

Electors must also bring accepted ID to prove their identity and address.

Voters without accepted ID, can still by signing a solemn declaration and having someone who is assigned to their polling station vouch for them.

Electors must be 18 and be Canadian citizens in order to vote.

Over 20 per cent of voters in the North Vancouver and West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country ridings have already cast their ballots in the advance polls.

In Burnaby North–Seymour, about 17 per cent of voters have already cast ballots in the advance polls.

Races in all three North Shore ridings are expected to be close.
