Where to vote in Toronto

Knowing where to vote in Toronto in today's federal election is a cinch if you got a voter registration card (which tells you polling station you've been assigned), but here's little reminder of what to do if you didn't get one.

Remember, anyone can vote who meets the following criteria: you're a Canadian citizen, 18 years or older on the day of the election, and can prove your identity and address. Assuming the first two are covered, there are a couple ways to satisfy the third requirement. If you have government-issued photo ID with your current address, that'll do. If not, you can also present two pieces of authorized identification, both of which have your name and one of which must have your address. If for whatever reason you don't have such documents, you can also get someone to take an oath on your behalf.

Find out what polling station to go to has been made easier in recent years. If you're online, the easiest way is probably to visit Vote.ca, which will direct you to a polling station based on your postal code and/or address. Elections Canada has a similar service, but is a bit tougher to use if your postal code doesn't work. Alternately you can call 1-800-463-6868 for information/help.

So, no excuses. Get out and vote!
