Some Voters Will Cast Ballot at Home

Voters who’ve had difficulty in the past getting to polling stations or returning offices due to disability will have a new voting option in October.

Elections Ontario will introduced home visits as a voting alternative for the Oct. 6 provincial election. By calling Elections Ontario or its local returning
office, electors who qualify can have a special ballot officer come to their home so they can cast their vote.

“I don’t like the idea of having someone come to your house and hold your hand. I just don’t find it very dignifying,” said Collis.
