Media Bulletin - Area advance polls open



    TORONTO, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - Qualified voters in the October 10 provincial
general election and referendum may vote at area advance polls, starting
today.
    Area advance polls will be open daily from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. from
Tuesday, September 25, 2007 to Thursday, October 4, in each of the province's
107 electoral districts.
    Advance voting will continue in the Returning Office from 9 a.m. to 9
p.m. until Thursday, October 4.
    Qualified electors who did not receive a Notice of Registration card and
are not on the Voters List can have their name added at the advance poll and
cast their ballots while there. To have their name added to the List, electors
must provide documents that show proof of identity and proof of residence.
    A change to electoral law requires electors to show documents that prove
their identity in order to receive their ballots. Electors who are on the
Voters List, but do not have proof of identity, can make a declaration.
    Advance poll locations may be obtained by visiting www.elections.on.ca or
calling 1-888-668-8683.

    -  a Canadian citizen, and
    -  a resident of the electoral district.
