CORNWALL – Residents across Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry are heading to the polls today to pick their representative at Queen’s Park.

It’s election day and polling locations across the riding open at 9 a.m. and will stay open for 12 hours.

You will need your voter information card and a piece of identification with your name in order to vote. If you don’t have your voter information card, a piece of ID with both your name and address will be needed to cast your ballot.

You can find more information on where to vote by using Elections Ontario’s Voter Information Service here.

While masks are not required to vote, masks and hand sanitizer will be on hand at polling stations.

There’s no incumbent this time around as Progressive Conservative MPP Jim McDonell earlier announced his retirement.

Voters will be marking an X for either Liberal Kirsten Gardner, Green Jacqueline Milner, Progressive Conservative Nolan Quinn, New Democrat Wendy Stephen, New Blue candidate Claude Tardif or Ontario Party candidate Remi Tremblay.

Across the province, roughly a million Ontarians or nearly 10 per cent of the electorate have already cast their ballots in advance polls – a marked increase from the 2018 election.
