Polls are open in much of the country in the first pandemic-era federal election.

Elections Canada says almost 6.8-million people cast early ballots, but the majority of the country’s roughly 30-million eligible voters are expected to cast their ballots today.

Voters are encouraged to wear masks at polling stations, but proof-of-vaccination rules do not apply even in provinces where they currently exist.

Most riding winners should be known at the end of the night, but some close races may not have official winners for several days.
