OTTAWA- An Old Ottawa South man and Elections Ontario are polls apart.

Herman "Harry" Latulippe received his voter card in the mail Thursday, telling him he was supposed to head to his old neighbourhood on June 12 -- somewhere he hasn't lived in 13 years.

Latulippe has lived in the Main and Lees area since 2010.

He's voted in two elections since then, one federal and one provincial. Both times, he's voted at Immaculata High School, almost directly across the street from his apartment.

That's where his voter card has always told him to go.

But not this year.

This year, it told him to head across the Canal to the Glebe and vote at 240 First Ave.

"Seems like there must be a waste of taxpayer dollars here," he said.

Not only does Latulippe not live in the Glebe anymore, but neither does his family. The home where he grew up was sold in 2002 after his mother passed away.

"There's no link to the family at all," he said.
