Electors Can Register at the Polls

Unregistered electors can still register and vote at their polling station on election day

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2009) - Most electors in Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley (Nova Scotia), Hochelaga (Quebec), Montmagny-L'Islet-Kamouraska-Riviere-du-Loup (Quebec) and New Westminster-Coquitlam (British Columbia) are already on the list of electors for the federal by-elections of November 9, 2009.
