The election in Manitoba is slated for Tuesday and here is how people can vote leading up to and on the day.

On election day, voting hours are from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and people can vote at any polling place in their electoral division.

In order to vote people will need to have one piece of valid government ID to show at the polling station.

If people have their name on the voters list they will receive a ballot after showing their ID.

If they do not have their name on the voters list they will have to take an oath confirming their identity and if the ID does not show their address, they will be asked to sign a declaration of address.

After the identification process has been completed people can take their ballot behind a screen and fill the circle beside the name of their chosen candidate.
