Voter Information Cards Are in the Mail
Registered electors should receive their card by October 1
Gatineau, Wednesday, September 23, 2015
- Elections Canada is mailing a personalized voter information card to each registered elector. The card tells electors when and where to vote and indicates the accessibility of their polling place.
- Electors who do not receive a card by October 1 or whose card shows the wrong address can register or update their address online.
- Electors whose card contains an error in the name and who cannot go online should contact the Elections Canada office in their electoral district.
- Electors who receive a card for a deceased person or someone unknown at that address should contact the Elections Canada office in their electoral district.
- If the location of a poll changes after the voter information cards are mailed, the electors concerned will receive another voter information card with the words "Replacement Card" in the bottom right corner.
- The voter information card cannot be used as proof of identity and address at the polls. View the list of accepted ID.
Elections Canada is an independent body set up by Parliament.
