If you're unable to vote in Canada's 42nd Federal Election on October 19, advance polls are ready and waiting for you to cast your ballot.

From October 9-12, advance polls will be held at various locations across each riding, but there are other ways to vote ahead as well, says Regional Media Advisor for Elections Canada, Marie-France Kenney.

"People can also go and vote now if they wanted to at their local Elections Canada office. Of course you need to bring the proper identification. You can also vote by mail. If you plan on being away, if you're out of the country, out of the province, you can ask to vote by mail. To do so, you need to go online and put in the request by October 13."

Humboldt (Community Gathering Place), Wakaw (Rec Centre), Middle Lake (Multiplex), and Vonda (Golden Age Club) have advance poll locations for the Carlton Trail-Eagle Creek riding. Locations are open during the four days from 12pm to 8pm.

Those in different locations or ridings can find their advance poll location by submitting residential information here.

With numerous areas that must be looked after upon the advance polls, as well as election day, they are looking for workers in each riding.

"We're still looking for poll workers to work at advance polls from October 9th to 12th. People have to be able to commit to the full four days," Kenney added. "There's also a paid training session."

Most voters should have received their information card in the mail.

"It does sometime take a little while for them to get there," she stated. "If they don't (have a card) they can call their local office and make sure they're registered. They can also go online and make sure they're registered. If not, you can register online."

Registration can be done directly at an advance polling location, or on election day, but Kenney advises that it will take longer. Online registration can be done here.

Voters are also reminded that even though they may have an information card, proper ID is still required when they go to vote.
