There's a lot of information to know and with debates, scandals, and Twitter flame wars occupying your airwaves, you might've forgotten to actually register to vote.
Or, you can use Elections Canada's Voter Information Service.
Zain Ahmad, a first-time federal voter and University of Toronto student, said that the voting process was "really easy and straightforward". In the 2015 election, 15,603 Canadians living outside of the country registered to vote.
Once advance polls close, the next option to vote is on October 21, election day, at the polling stations specified on your voter registration card.
The Election Commission is reminding New Bedford voters that October 16 is the deadline to register to vote in the November final election.
Advance polls are open across the North Shore from 9:00 a.m.to 9:00 p.m.
If you have no ID, you can have someone declare your address in writing and must bring someone who is assigned to your voting station to vouch for your identity.
During the last federal election, voter turnout among people aged 18 to 24 rose from 38.8 per cent in 2011 to 57.1 per cent, what Elections Canada says was the "largest increase for this age group" since it began reporting demographic data on turnout in 2004.
If you don't have one standard government issued photo ID (like a driver's license), you'll be asked to show two pieces of ID.
Nor can you take a photo of your ballot and share it, because the vote is considered to be secret.
Although, voters can't cast ballots just anywhere.
Dugald Maudsley, regional media adviser with Elections Canada, said the agency is looking to hire poll workers for election day in 14 electoral districts in the Toronto area. A total of 3.6 million people cast ballots in advance polls in Canada. No word yet about their popularity, but they're created to make voting "easier and more accessible" for students, university employees and the general population, according to Elections Canada spokesperson Pierre Pilon.
