Recently, many on social media expressed concern that proof of vaccination will be required to vote in the upcoming provincial election in Ontario. A concern that arose out of a misinterpreted body of text from the Elections Ontario website.

Diverge Media reached out to elections Ontario to ask the question – Will voters be required to be vaccinated in order to vote in-person?

Elections Ontario responded to Diverge by saying that “Elections Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccination policy applies to all vendors, consultants and visitors entering its corporate office facilities to conduct in-person business. It does not apply to voters wishing to cast their ballot at voting locations in Ontario.”

Although the vaccination policy from Elections Ontario discriminates against those working at, visiting, vending or consulting in their corporate office facilities – It’s good to know the discrimination won’t be extended to voters come election day.
