Transcription: When you arrive at the polling station, an election official will greet you and show you to a table>where you will be asked for your identification. Make sure you bring identification showing both your name and address in the city of London, and your Voter Information Card which you received in the mail. A complete list of acceptable ID is available at london.ca/elections. An Election Official will then check for your name on the Voters’ List and cross your name off the list. If your name isn’t on the Voters’ List, no problem! An Election Official will help you complete a form, and then you’ll be able to vote. The Election Official will issue you a ballot for your ward and school trustee support in a secrecy folder, exposing the Election Official’s initials only. The Election Official will direct you to go behind the voting screen. Once you are behind the screen, read the instructions on your ballot. Mark your ballot by filling in the oval the right of the candidate of your choice. You can vote for one mayoral candidate and for one councillor candidate in your ward. If applicable for your ward, you can also choose to vote for the designated number of appropriate school board trustees. Once you are finished, place your marked ballot back into the secrecy folder to keep others from seeing who you voted for. Bring your ballot in the secrecy folder over to the election official at the Vote Tabulator station, who will insert it face-down into the tabulator. Once your Ballot has been read and accepted by the Tabulator, it will display a message saying you have successfully voted. You will now exit the Polling Station. Remember: Election workers are there to help you. If you need anything to make your voting experience easier, just ask.
