WELLINGTON COUNTY – Almost 769,000 people decided to cast their ballot early in advanced polls this year.
6,603 people have already voted in Perth Wellington. Meanwhile Guelph had 9,477 advanced votes.
Cara Des Granges is the Bilingual Communications Coordinator with Elections Ontario, says they open the advanced polls in order to accommodate everyone.
“We want to make it easy. You never know what’s going to happen on Election Day; if you’re going to be out of town or something like that. For us advanced voting really provides that opportunity to vote ahead of the Election Day.”
Kingston and the Islands had the most advanced votes in the province; with 11,644 in total.
