Don't trust callers suggesting changed voting locations: Elections Canada

Kitchener-Waterloo and Winnipeg-South Centre residents got fake info

Elections Canada says it has received calls from voters, mainly in Ontario, who say they were called and told to vote at a poll other than the one listed on their voter registration card. “We just want to make sure that both the media and the voters know that there have not been any changes in the voting [locations],” Elections Canada spokeswoman Francine Bastien told CBC News. She confirmed that Kitchener-Waterloo and Winnipeg-South Centre were among the affected ridings.
