The advance polls opened on Tuesday in the Toronto municipal election.

The polls are open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Oct. 19.

There will be one voting place in each of the 44 wards. Click here for a list.

Voters can also cast their ballots at Toronto City Hall until Oct. 17.

City officials said voting cards were mailed out last week. The cards provide information about when and where to vote during either the advance vote or on election day Oct. 27.

People are encouraged to bring their voting cards with them when casting a ballot. But it is possible to vote without a card.

Eligible voters can vote with a valid piece of identification and proof of address.
