In Rankin Inlet, voters can go to the Siniktarvik Hotel - Salon A. In Cambridge Bay, voters can head to the Luke Novoligak Community Hall.
Voters are required to be a Nunavut resident for at least one year on May 1 to vote. They are also required to be living in the community where the referendum is being held.
