Advance polls for the Toronto municipal election are open this holiday Thanksgiving Day (Monday, Oct. 10) for local voters to cast a ballot.
The city’s advance polls opened up on Friday, Oct. 7, and will continue to be open through until Friday, Oct. 14, from the hours of 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day.
The decision to have the advance polls open during the Thanksgiving long weekend and on today’s statutory holiday was made in an effort to to help give voting opportunities to post-secondary students who are home for the holiday.
After the advance polls end this Friday, the next day to vote is Election Day on Monday, Oct. 24.
Each of the city’s 25 wards will have two advance polling stations open.
In Beaches-East York, the advance polls are located at the Beaches Recreation Centre, 6 Williamson Rd.; and at the Secord Community Centre, 91 Barrington Ave.
In Scarborough Southwest, the advance polls are located at the Birchmount Community Centre, 93 Birchmount Rd.; and the Warden Hilltop Community Centre, 25 Mendelssohn St.
