We’ve heard a lot of talk from the party leaders the past five weeks, but today you get to have your say.
It’s Election Day in Manitoba. The polls open are opened at 7 am and close tonight at 8 pm.
Every voter has a designated polling station listed on your enumeration record.
If you haven’t been enumerated, you can still vote by bringing one piece of government-issued photo ID or two pieces of ID with your name. If neither of those pieces includes your address on them, you’ll be asked to sign a declaration of address.
And if you don’t know who your returning office is, or if you have any other voting questions, you can find out the answers here.
Spend Election Night With 680 CJOB
Who will be Manitoba’s Premier for the next four years? Which party will form the next government, making decisions about your taxes and the services you care about? Who will represent you locally in the Legislature?
Richard Cloutier will be in the anchor chair starting at 7 pm to tee up our coverage. He’ll take you through the milestones in the campaign and talk to some key strategists involved. He’ll also take you through a top five list of the most compelling, interesting and influential campaigns in Manitoba history.
Then when the polls close, we’ll bring you up-to-the-minute results as the votes are tallied. We’ll take you to the three main party’s headquarters, and to some of the key Manitoba constituencies that serve as barometers of the electorate. We’ll bring you the speeches of the winner and losers live.
Geoff Currier and a panel of experts and party insiders will analyze the fallout of the vote both on 680 CJOB and Global News – what went right, what went wrong, and what does this mean for Manitoba moving forward? Former NDP MLA and member of the ‘rebel five’ Erin Selby, Progressive Conservative candidate Heather Stefanson (Tuxedo), candidate director with the Manitoba Liberals Corey Shefman, and U of M political analyst Royce Koop will provide their insights.
