CHANGES TO VOTING IN MANITOBA - COMING FOR THE 2023 GENERAL ELECTION

VOTE ANYWHERE IN YOUR ELECTORAL DIVISION ON ELECTION DAY

On election day, voters can cast their ballot at any polling place in their electoral division. They cam also vote at any poll within a location, so there’s no more waiting in line for a specific poll to be available.

ADVANCE VOTING SIMPLIFIED FOR VOTERS AND ELECTION WORKERS

Voters can continue to vote anywhere during advance voting. Those who vote outside their electoral division will have their ballot printed on demand. This replaces a write-in ballot and list of candidates provided to the voter. Advance votes will also be counted in the electoral division in which they are cast, instead of being returned to their home electoral division for counting.

VOTE COUNTING MACHINES SPEED UP THE COUNT

Vote counting machines, or tabulators, will be used for advance and election day in most polling places. Tabulators use secure electronic technology to record the vote, speeding up the count and reporting of results. Paper ballots will continue to be used and voters will still mark their ballots by hand.

VOTERS AUTOMATICALLY STRUCK OFF THE LIST

The use of technology at the polls allows election workers to electronically strike voters off the voters list when they go to vote. Election workers across the province will see that the voter is struck off. Voting officers will no longer have to print voter information by hand or do data entry to update the voter register. This saves time and reduces errors.
