Can I vote?
You can vote if you:
are a Canadian citizen
are at least 18 years old on election day
can prove your identity and address
For students under 18, your school can participate in Student Vote – a hands-on parallel election program: studentvote.ca
Am I registered to vote?
Check, update or complete your registration at elections.ca. You can also register by contacting your local Elections Canada office.
Registering in advance is easy and will save you time when you go to vote.
You can register in advance until October 13 at 6 pm local time. After that, you must register when you go to vote.
• Watch for your voter information card
Once you're registered, you'll get a card.
It tells you when, where and ways to vote and the accessibility of your polling places.
Check your name and address on the card and contact Elections Canada if there are errors.
What ID should I take with me?
To prove your identity and address:
Show 1 piece of government-issued ID with your photo, name and current address (e.g. driver's licence or a provincial or territorial ID card).
Show 2 pieces of ID. Both must have your name and 1 must have your current address (e.g. health card and a utility bill).
Take an oath. Show two pieces of ID with your name and have someone who knows you attest to your address. They must show proof of identity and address, and be registered in the same polling division. They can attest for only one person.
Voter Identification – Helpful Tips
What else should I know?
Elections Canada accepts original ID cards and documents.
For documents issued electronically (such as e-statements or e-invoices), you can bring printouts or show them on a mobile device.
Take your voter information card with you when you go to vote. It cannot be used as proof of identity or address, but it will make the voting process faster.
