Voting place accessibility standards

In our planning for the April 2016 general election, our Electoral Accessibility Initiative used an extensive checklist to determine accessibility for roughly 1,100 regular and advance voting places needed for the provincial election. Through the assessment process it was determined that some of these voting places did not meet all the mandatory criteria of our checklist.

The remedy for all of these locations was to provide an extra information officer on-site to provide assistance to voters.

There are other ways to vote.
