Election Day: You Can Still Register to Vote

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 26, 2006) - The great majority of electors in Repentigny (Quebec) and London North Centre (Ontario) are on the lists of electors and ready to vote in the November 27, 2006, by-elections. Most were already on the preliminary lists that were produced immediately after the launch of the by-elections. Among those who were not, or who were not registered at their correct addresses, many have since registered or had the necessary corrections made before the revision period closed.

An elector who is still not on the list will be able to register on election day at the assigned polling station for his or her residence, just before voting. The elector will need to show official documents that include his or her name, address and signature, or take the prescribed oath and be vouched for under oath by another elector whose name already appears on the list of electors in the same polling division.

The Chief Electoral Officer of Canada, Jean-Pierre Kingsley, has instructed the returning officers for Repentigny and London North Centre to make sure they have adequate resources to meet the demand for election day registration.

To find out where to vote or how to register, an elector may visit www.elections.ca or call the Voter Information Service at 1-800-463-6868. The appropriate polling station can usually be located by providing the elector's postal code.

By-elections will be held in Repentigny and London North Centre on Monday, November 27, 2006.

Elections Canada is an independent body set up by Parliament.
