Residents will find out their next provincial representative quicker than every before. Elections Canada has introduced a new kind of polling station, which will be used later today.

“We’re very excited that in this election, we’ve introduced technology for the first time. The exciting part is that at the end of the day, we will have an instant result.” said Election Clerk Paul Duggan.

“We have several polls in each community that are high-tech. Bring your Voters Information card, we will scan it, find you on our list of electors, cross you off immediately, you sign one piece of paper and we will hand you a ballot, you will go behind a secrecy screen and vote, and then you take it to the tabulator, which will immediately add your vote to the count.

There are three tech-polls in Kenora and five in Dryden. Duggan stressed that voters can only go to the poll that your Voters Information card indicates. Other voters can go to any available polling station.
