  • Advance voting for the federal by-election in Labrador (Newfoundland and Labrador) begins on Friday, May 3, and continues on Saturday, May 4 and Monday, May 6.
  • Advance polls are open from noon to 8:00 p.m. (local time).
  • Electors can find the location of their advance poll on the back of the voter information card mailed to them by Elections Canada.
  • Electors who did not receive a voter information card or who received one with incorrect information can find their advance poll by using the Voter Information Service at or contacting their local Elections Canada office:

"It's simple and easy to vote on any one of the three advance voting days," says Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand. "It takes most voters only a few minutes to cast their ballot. If you're not already on the list of electors, you can register to vote at your advance polling station, provided you bring approved identification."

Vote. Shape your world.
