Advance polling opens today for the federal election.
Voters can show up at various polling stations throughout the next four days from noon until 8pm.
Returning officer for the Kootenay-Columbia riding is Rob Switzer.
He says government issued photo ID, like a drivers licence, is ideal.
But if you don’t have that then you need two pieces.
Both should show who you are and the other where you live.
Switzer says advance polling is becoming more popular with each election as people enjoy the convenience of a stretch of voting opportunities away from the main polling day.
