Hello Everyone,
I searched The Elections Canada web site for the answer to this question: Are campaign signs allowed in/near a polling place during a referendum? I was worried about the Yes & Yes signs some of us have in our car windows.
The Canada Elections Act prohibits posting or displaying any partisan material in polling places (including campaign signs). In practice, what this means is that partisan material cannot be posted or displayed in the room where the vote takes place, in the hallways leading to the room, or in the entrance to the closest door. In many cases where there may be several entrances, or one from the parking lot and another from the sidewalk or bus stop, it also means that partisan material cannot be posted or displayed anywhere in or on the building where voting takes place, or on the property on which the building is located, including the parking lot.
