The federal election will become accessible for students from Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber, with ballot boxes coming to campus.
Nora Esperanza, residence manager, sent out emails regarding the federal election to students in residence to vote both in B Building and inside the residence lobby.
Esperanza wrote that “students who are eligible to vote are encouraged to exercise their right to do so.”
There are a few requirements that are necessary in order for one to vote in the federal election. A student needs to be an 18-year-old Canadian citizen by the day of the election and identification is required to prove the identity and address of the student.
The complete list of acceptable identification is on www.elections.ca for any students that need it.
The residence lobby will only have a polling station on Oct. 21, the actual election day. On top of the previous requirements, those voting in the lobby will need to bring the email Esperanza sent out to those living on campus.
Advanced voting will take place at Humber College North Campus in Boardroom B101 from Saturday to Wednesday. The poll station is open on Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and from10 a.m. to 8 p.m. for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
