Dear Connect2Canada Members:
Canadians will vote in the 39th general election on January 23, 2006. Elections Canada is seeking to inform Canadian electors, including those living abroad, of their right to vote and the electoral process. We hope that the following information, prepared by Elections Canada, may be of interest to you. If you know Canadians in the United States who would also be interested in this information, please pass this message on to them.

If you are eligible to vote in a federal electoral event, you can do it from virtually anywhere in the world. Follow this simple three-step process:
- Check the voter eligibility
criteria to make sure you can vote.
- Register for a special ballot.
- Then use the special ballot voting kit that Elections Canada will send you at the mailing address you provide.
Register early. Allow enough time for us to send a ballot to you, and for you to return it before the deadline. Your vote cannot be counted if it arrives late.
It's up to you!
It's your responsibility to send in your registration form and then your ballot on time. The registration form must reach Elections Canada in Ottawa by 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 17, 2006.
