Key facts of violation

In March 2021, Elections Canada referred a file to the Office of the Commissioner of Canada Elections (OCCE) alleging that Lorena Lynn Lafleur voted via Special Voting Ballot on October 14, 2019, in the electoral district of Battlefords--Lloydminster, and also voted on October 21, 2019 (polling day), in the same electoral district.

The documentary evidence provided by Elections Canada to the OCCE investigator includes:

An elector voting at an advance poll or at a polling station on polling day must prove their identity and residence to election officers, in the manner provided for at section 143 of the Canada Elections Act, by providing a piece of identification issued by a Canadian government (federal, provincial, territorial or local). The elector's name, her date of birth and her residential address were verified and confirmed to be the same for both votes.

There are therefore reasonable grounds to believe that Lorena Lynn Lafleur voted more than once during the 43rd federal general election, which is prohibited by subsection 281.5(1) of the Act.
