New Federal Election Rules

Election Canada is doing away with a rule that has prevented some Canadians living outside the country from voting in federal elections.
This after an Ontario court earlier this month struck down certain provisions of the Elections Act which had restricted Canadians who lived abroad for five years or more.
Elections Canada says eligible residents will now be able to apply to be added to an international registry in order to vote by special ballot.
