WATCH ABOVE: Did you know you can vote in the 2015 federal election right now?
Deep breath, everyone.
We’re in the home stretch, for real: T-minus 10 days ’til Canada’s longest election campaign in more than a century comes to a close.
And advance voting is upon us.

Find your riding here:
Find your advance polling station here, and click “When and where can I vote at advance polls?”
If you want you can register and vote at the same time, although you should give yourself time to do both.
Eager voters found themselves stymied by long lines at advance polling stations Friday.
“We have heard that some voting locations had line-ups at the start,” spokesperson Diane Benson said in an email.
“We do our best to serve them and thank electors for their patience if they had to wait. Advance poll voting takes a couple of minutes longer than regular voting (slightly different procedures under the Act).
“Electors come when it is convenient for them. We can’t always anticipate volume but returning officers watch for it and can send additional staff to help when required.”
