By-elections are being held in two federal ridings today.

Voters go to the polls in the Ontario riding of Whitby-Oshawa and Yellowhead in Alberta.

The Whitby-Oshawa vacancy was caused by the sudden death of Jim Flaherty. The former finance minister took the riding in 2011 with 58 per cent of the vote, but polls indicate a tight race between the Conservatives and Liberals.

Former Whitby Mayor Pat Perkins is running for the governing Conservatives, while political newcomer Celina Caesar-Chavannes is carrying the Liberal banner.

Both Prime Minister Harper and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau have campaigned in the riding. Trudeau is planning on being with Caesar-Chavannes for the results tonight.

Trish McAuliffe is running for the NDP.

Polls close tonight at 9:30.
