Advance polling stations open today in Ontario as party leaders fan out across the province to invite voters to their platforms.

Voting day is officially set for June 2, but people can start voting early from today.

The advance voting period runs until 28 May, with the meeting places open from 10:00 to 20:00

New Democrat leader Andrea Horwath was scheduled to visit northern Ontario today with a job announcement in Sault Ste. Marie before a planned afternoon visit with indigenous leaders in Thunder Bay, but she will not be there as planned after testing positive for covid-19 and will campaign virtually instead.

Progressive Conservative leader Doug Ford is scheduled to be in the Niagara region with expected stops in Niagara-on-the-Lake and St. Louis. Catharines.

Liberal leader Steven Del Duca is in Mississauga for a planned stop, while green leader Mike Schreiner is also isolating himself at home after testing positive for covid-19.
