AFTER YOU VOTE, COME BACK FOR LIVE RESULTS ON SOOTODAY'S CANADA VOTES PAGE

It's election day in Canada. 

In Sault Ste. Marie and area, polls are open from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

To vote, you must be at least 18 years old, be a Canadian citizen and prove your identity and address. If you have a voter's card, bring that to the polling station listed on the card, along with ID. Approved pieces of ID include driver's license or other Canadian government-issued ID with your photo, name and current address. This includes ID issued by federal, provincial or local government. 

Without government-issued ID, you can show two pieces of ID with your name and one must have your current address. According to Elections Canada, this includes a voter information card and bank statement, or utility bill and student ID card.

More information on how to vote without ID and a list of acceptable documents are available here

If you're unsure of where to vote, you can find your polling station on elections.ca.

In Sault Ste. Marie, there are five candidates in the race. They are Liberal incumbant Terry Sheehan, Conservative Sonny Spina, NDP candidate Sara McCleary, Geo McLean for the Green Party, and PPC candidate Amy Zuccato.

Once the polls close, SooToday will have up-to-the-minute LIVE LOCAL RESULTS and an interactive election map on our Canada Votes homepage.
