Need to Vote but you’re in St. John’s?

I just got this email and I thought it would be of interest to some of our blog readers:checkmark

Hello!

I’m very pleased to announce that the St. John’s Native Friendship Centre is participating in a pilot project this year to offer advanced polling (voting) at the Native Friendship Centre (716 Water Street)!! This is for the Federal Election.

We will be open for voting 10am-8pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this coming week.

That will be Oct. 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th.

This station will be open for Special Ballots, which means if you’re in town and away from your home district, you can still vote for the candidates in your home district from this voting station!! (example, if you’re in St. John’s for a medical appt, you can vote at SJNFC for your Labrador candidates.)

Attached, please find 2 flyers that you are welcome (and encouraged) to share with your participants/clients/staff.

This polling station is meant to target the often under-represented Aboriginal vote, but this polling station is open to EVERYONE.

The first flyer is about voting at SJNFC (St. John’s Native Friendship Centre). The 2nd flyer is information on what types of ID are accepted for voting this year.

This polling station will ALSO be able to register voters on-site.

This is open to ALL voters!! You yourself are invited to vote here, as well as your friends and family.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Nakummek / Tshinashkumitin / Wela’lin / Thank you
