Voter Identification

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).


OR

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).


OR

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.
