What are your options for voting?

On Campus

From October 5 to 9 all students, faculty, staff, and visitors can vote on campus in the Alpine Room in the Campus Activity Centre. This location will be set up as a temporary Elections Canada office so that you can vote in our local Kamloops riding or in your home riding if you have a different permanent address. This allows convenient voting for all voters without the need to request a ballot by mail.

  • October 5 (Saturday) – 9:00am-6:00pm – Alpine Room, Campus Activity Center
  • October 6 (Sunday) – 12:00pm-4:00pm – Alpine Room, Campus Activity Center
  • October 7 to 9 (Monday – Wednesday) – 9:00am-9:30pm – Alpine Room, Campus Activity Center

Option 3: If you don’t have ID

You can still vote if you declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who knows you and who is assigned to your polling station vouch for you.

The voucher must be able to prove their identity and address. A person can vouch for only one person (except in long-term care institutions).
