A great week for college students - advance polls have been reinstated on college campuses

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - The month of September continues to improve for college students across Ontario. Elections Ontario informed the College Student Alliance (CSA) today that 25 of the 27 advance polling stations originally removed from college campuses have been reinstated. The reversal of Elections Ontario's original decision to remove the polling stations comes nearly one week before election day.

"It is our hope that reinstating these polling stations will contribute to a greater student voter turnout," says Brian Costantini, President of CSA. "Student associations are working tirelessly to ensure students are properly informed, and that students take the time to cast a ballot this provincial election."

The advance polls on selected college campuses are scheduled for between September 28th and September 30th. Colleges and student associations have received the dates and times of these advance polls. Campus outreach initiatives have continued on college campuses, and students are urged to visit www.itsyourvote.ca for more information on the provincial election.

The College Student Alliance (CSA) is an advocacy organization, which has been proudly serving Ontario's college and college-university students since 1975. The CSA currently represents 15 colleges and 23 member councils with over 130,000 full-time student members throughout the province.
