Advance voting open this Saturday and Sunday in Toronto
Weekend advance voting for Toronto's municipal election will be available this Saturday, October 16 and Sunday, October 17 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at 44 locations. A voting place is provided in each of the city's 44 wards, as listed below.

In support of accessibility, the new Voter Assist Terminal technology will be available to use at each voting place during the weekend advance vote. This paper ballot-marking technology enables voters who have disabilities to mark their ballot privately and independently. The Voter Assist Terminal can be used by people who would benefit from a Braille key pad, an audio headset, zoom or contrast features, a "sip-n-puff" device or a rocker paddle for foot, hand, elbow or chin use.
