It’s Election Day in Manitoba - here’s how voters can have their voices heard in the Flin Flon riding.
The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m today at 40 separate polls across the riding, laid out in 13 different communities.
Flin Flon voters will cast their ballots either at the Flin Flon Community Hall (polls 11-15) or the St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church (polls 16-19). Voters in Flin Flon will be told which polling location they should head to on their provincial Voter Information Card.
Cranberry Portage voters will vote at the Cranberry Portage Elementary School, while voters in Snow Lake will cast their ballots at the Lawrie Marsh Community Hall. Voting in Sherridon and Cross Lake will take place at each of the respective location’s Community Hall.
Two voting locations will be open in Norway House - polls 30-38 are at the Norway House Cree Nation Multiplex for status voters, while non-status voters will go to the Norway House Community Council building.
Mathias Colomb Adult Centre will be the voting location in Pukatawagan, while Leaf Rapids voters will cast their ballots at the community’s council chambers.
South Indian Lake’s polls will be at the O-Pipon-Na-Piwin Cree Nation Community Hall.

The final polling location is in Tadoule Lake, where voters can head to the Sayisi Dene First Nation council chambers.
In order to cast their ballot, voters will need either one piece of government-issued photo ID, like a driver’s license, treaty card or passport, or two documents that include the voter’s name, including a Manitoba Health card, Social Insurance card, a credit card or a utility bill. Voters already on a voters list who do not have ID can have another voter with ID vouch for their identity. Any voter whose name is not on the voters list will be asked to swear an oath.
Voters in the riding have four candidates to choose from: the Manitoba Liberal Party's James Lindsay, NDP incumbent Tom Lindsey, the Green Party of Manitoba's Saara Murnick and Progressive Conservative Theresa Wride.
