The case of Canadian citizens, denied ballots in the 2011 federal election on grounds of their foreign residence, will be heard by the country’s high court.
The Supreme Court says it’ll hear an appeal regarding the voting rights of Canadians who live outside the country for over five years.

The Ontario Superior Court called the relevant parts of the Canada Elections Act unconstitutional.
That was overturned in a split decision by the Ontario Court of Appeal.
The suit was filed by Gillian Frank of Toronto, who’s lived in the U.S. since 2001 and teaches at Princeton and Jamie Duong, who left Montreal for high school in Vermont and works at Cornell University.
