Although advance voting officially got underway this past Monday in Quebec's Ungava riding, hundreds of Kuujjuaq residents still have not received their voter cards due to missing postal information. Some see this as a big hurdle to Inuit participating in the Oct. 3 provincial election. Many of the voter cards sent by mail to Kuujjuaq lacked a post office box number.
