If you've been to your local polling station to cast your vote for Canada's next prime minister, you may have noticed something was missing. Elections Canada isn't giving out Canadian election stickers to voters after they've slipped their ballot into the box this year and it is not going unnoticed. The internet is filled with people who are disappointed that they didn't walk away from voting proudly wearing an "I Voted" sticker.

We get it, voting is immensely important and everyone loves a little pat on the back for completing an important task, even if it's in sticker form. If you're curious why the little badges of honour have been cancelled in Canada, we've got the scoop. Narcity spoke to Leanne Nyirfa, spokesperson for Elections Canada, to learn about why the stickers are no longer available to Canadian voters.

I voted , and my dad voted, and we canceled out each other's votes. I'd call every Election Day morning to But poll workers told them they had to vote using provisional ballots because the address on file for I had come to this same polling place in March for the presidential preference election.

As it turns out, the stickers weren't around in the Canadian federal election in 2015 either, Nyirfa told us. If you're sure you remember wearing a sticker in recent years, you may be recalling a provincial election instead. As for federal elections in Canada, there were no stickers last election and that's still the case for this election.

According to Nyirfa, there was a reason that the stickers were absent on the October 21, 2019 election day and during the early voting period. "We really needed to focus our operational priorities on implementing the changes and the new requirements under Bill C-86," she said.

Elections Canada simply didn't have the time or resources to worry about "I Voted" stickers for the federal election. If you're wondering what Bill C-86 is, according to the Canadian HR Reporter, the Bill impacts the Canada Labour Code, specifically for Federally regulated employers. Therefore, ramifications stretch to Elections Canada personnel.
