Residents are urged to review those cards to make sure that all of the information is correct, if it is you're set to head to the polls, if not making changes is a fairly simple process that can be addressed online or by contacting the local Elections Canada office located at 227 on 1st Avenue East, across from Hecate Strait Employment Centre, in the old NIS building (above the current Wheelhouse Brewing Company location).

The short six page information pamphlet also delivers key background on How to vote and the options you can use to prove your identity at the election station.
