The 43rd general election is one week from today in Manitoba. 

Tuesday, October 3rd is the day most people in the province will fill out their ballot but there are many reasons some people may not be able to do it that day. For those folks, there are plenty of options to vote in advance and for some communities in our area, that day might be today.

During advance voting, Manitobans can vote at any advance poll in the province, whether it is in their riding or not.

Mike Ambrose is Director of Communications and Public Information for Elections Manitoba and he says to be eligible to vote in the election, you need to be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years of age on election day, and a resident of Manitoba for six months prior to election day. 

All voters require ID to vote, either one piece of government-issued photo ID with their address on it or two other pieces of ID. Examples of government-issued photo ID can include a driver's license and a Manitoba identification card. The two other documents that have your name can include a passport, treaty card, Manitoba Health card, Social Insurance card, utility bill, credit card, or Declaration of First Nation Guarantor for Proof of Identity.

Voters are encouraged to bring their Voter Information Card, which can be used as one piece of ID.

While some advance polling stations will be open for the rest of the week, others are only open today, including several in the Central Plains. Here are some of those locations along with a few others you can vote at for the rest of the week.
