Cars were lining up outside Regina city hall Wednesday for the first day of drive-thru voting.

It's the first time the city has let people vote from their cars as part of advance polling for the municipal election.

A temporary kiosk has been set up on McIntyre Street and will remain open until Friday.

Advance polls are for people who think they won't be able to vote on election day, Oct. 24.

In addition to the drive-thru approach, the city is also giving shopping mall voting a try, setting up advance polling stations at the Northgate, Victoria Square and Golden Mile malls.

Here's the list of advance polling stations that will be open between now and Oct. 20:

  • SGI (2260 11th Ave.),Oct. 10, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
