Get ready to vote

Make sure you're registered

Check your registration if you've moved, never voted before or are a student living away from home.

Go to elections.ca/register now. It's easy and will save you time when you go vote in the upcoming federal election.

Watch for your voter information card

If you're registered, you will get a voter information card in the mail after the election is called. It tells you when and where to vote.

Check your name and address on the card. If there are errors, or if you don't receive a card, go to elections.ca or call us to update your information.

Check that you have the right ID

Here are your options:

Show one piece of government-issued ID with your photo, name and address. For example: your driver's licence.

OR

Show two pieces of ID. Both pieces must have your name, and one must also have your address. For example: your health card plus a utility bill, or your student card plus a bank statement.

OR

Take an oath. Show two pieces of ID with your name and have someone who knows you attest to your address. This person must show proof of identity and address, and be registered in the same polling division. This person can attest for only one person.

Go to elections.ca for the full list of accepted ID, details on accessibility, and learn about the many ways you can vote.
