U.S. Election 2016 October 22, 2016

Early voting is surging less than three weeks before the U.S. Election Day on Nov. 7.
As of Oct. 22, more than 5.3 million votes have been cast, far ahead of the pace at this time in 2012. While Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton unveiled an emotional television ad featuring the parents of a slain Muslim American Army captain this week, Donald Trump assured supporters he would have no regrets if he loses the presidential election because he was going all out in the final weeks of the campaign.

2016 plebiscite on electoral reform October 11, 2016

The  upcoming plebiscite on electoral reform will mark many historic firsts.

Islanders will have the option to vote online and by telephone. This is not only a first for P.E.I., but the first province-wide electronic vote in Canada. 

The voting age has been lowered to 16, which is also a Canadian first.

The voting period extends for a total of 10 days – another first for P.E.I., with two traditional in-person voting days Nov. 4 and 5.

The results will be counted electronically, including the paper ballots, which is the first time any vote in P.E.I. has used electronic tabulation.

The ballot itself will also be new for Islanders, as it is a preferential ballot that will ask voters to rank the five proposed electoral options in order from one to five.

The following set of articles explains the options on the ballot.
