Advance polling station locations are listed on voter information cards, which were mailed out a few weeks ago.

Hollick notes that while he's expecting a steady turn out for the coming four days, his office has been taking voters since the election was called last month.

Voters can vote at any Elections Canada office up until 6 p.m. October 15.

Marantz said the advanced voting trend was reflected nationally with turnout doubling in the 2015 election.

Free Flu Shots Available Friday
"As much as 10 percent of the US workforce will get the flu this year, with 17 million workdays lost as a result", said Cline. The best way to do that? Flu shots are available for $24 at both Health Division offices in Pontiac and Southfield.

The total number represents a 71 per cent increase from the federal election in 2011, when 2.1 million Canadians voted ahead of election day. Operating from 9 a.m.to 9 p.m. from Friday, Oct. 11 to Monday, Oct. 14.

If you have not received your voter card, you can check with Elections Canada to see if you are registered to vote. No word yet about their popularity, but they're created to make voting "easier and more accessible" for students, university employees and the general population, according to Elections Canada spokesperson Pierre Pilon.

The worldwide register of electors show 19,094 Canadians living in the US are signed up to vote, making up nearly 43 per cent of all registered overseas.

There's a catch though - for advance polls, voters can only vote at their assigned polling station.

During the last election, about 18 per cent of voters in both North and West Vancouver voted in advance polls. The office will remain open on Wednesday, October 16, from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.in order to allow the public more time to complete their voter registration process and make necessary updates to their names or addresses.

Nor can you take a photo of your ballot and share it, because the vote is considered to be secret.
