Winnipeg Elections: Winnipeg Election Day: How to vote, dates, venue, and all you need to know

Ahead of Manitoba’s municipal elections on Wednesday, in which voters will decide the next mayor, city councilors and school boards, voters need to consider a few things as they head to the polls.

198 polling stations across the city will be staffed by 2,000 employees hired by the City of Winnipeg.

You can vote at these polling stations between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Marc Lemoine, senior election official and town clerk, reportedly said that “sometime between 6:30 and 7:00 a.m.,” staff will get there and get everything ready to open the doors at 8:00 a.m

Eligible voters should have received a card indicating where they will be voting on Election Day. Those who did not receive voter ID can call 311 or search online to learn where to vote.

Winnipeggers require either a government-issued ID with photo, name and address, or two authorized IDs (original pieces) proving their name and address at the polling station.

If you have two IDs, one must have your current address and both should have your name.

Lemoine said these IDs could be “a medical card, a credit card,” or other types.

According to Lemoine, early lineups are expected at 8am, and there will be an after-work rush from 4pm to 8pm. But between 10am and 4pm it would be slow.
