Today, October 21, 2019 is election day in Canada. Canada runs on a democratic government and allows their Canadian citizens to vote for their political party/leaders. Each political party has their own platform that summarizes a list of policies that the party wants to fulfill if they are elected. The right to vote is how many Canadian citizens are able to influence the decisions about how their country is governed. Votes are done by secret ballot meaning no one will know which party a specific voter has voted for. There are many polling stations across Canada, find out where yours is by visiting https://www.elections.ca/scripts/vis/FindED?L=e&PAGEID=20
Remember, you will need to bring an ID to vote, visit https://www.elections.ca/content2.aspx?section=id&document=index&lang=e to see the three options of identification.
