ELECTION 2015: Surrey and Delta head to the polls today

Stay informed with The Leader's coverage online.

Election day is upon us and the polls are now open in Surrey and Delta for the 2015 Canadian federal election.

Voters have until 7 p.m. this evening to cast a ballot in favour of a candidate to represent them in the House of Commons.

Residents of Surrey and Delta will be voting for candidates in one of six ridings: Cloverale-Langley City, Fleetwood-Port Kells, South Surrey-White Rock, Surrey Centre, Surrey Newton and Delta.

Information on where you can vote, and which riding you live in, can be found at elections.ca

Most registered voters will have received cards in the mail directing them to their designated polling location. The cards aren’t required however, and voters can register at a polling place, either with a driver’s licence or other government-issued card with a name, photo and address, or with two pieces of identification, one of which must show an address.

Across Canada, advance voting numbers were up more than 70 per cent.
