Elections Manitoba begins door-knocking registration campaign ahead of Oct. 3 vote

Between Aug. 17 and 24, some Manitobans can expect a knock at their door regarding the upcoming election.

Elections Manitoba registration agents will be visiting homes to register eligible Manitobans to vote in the general election, which is expected to be Oct. 3.

“Registration agents will visit newly constructed neighbourhoods as well as areas of high mobility – areas where people may move in and out more often such as apartment blocks and near post-secondary campuses,” Elections Manitoba said in a news release.

Election officials will be wearing identification and will ask for the name, address, and phone number of all eligible voters within the household.

This process will make voting faster for all those wishing to cast their ballot. Voters who aren’t registered prior to Sept. 14 will still be able to register at the polls on Election Day.

Canadian citizens who are 18 years old on or before Election Day, and have lived in Manitoba for a minimum of six months, are considered eligible voters.
