Canadian Civic Address for Voting Purposes
The civic address that you provide on the Statement of Ordinary Residence (SOR) form determines the electoral district for which your vote will be counted.
If you are completing your first SOR:
As a member of the Regular Force or Special Force of the CF or a civilian CF elector, you must designate as your address for voting purposes:
- your address of ordinary residence in Canada immediately before being enrolled in, or hired by, the CF
If you are updating your current SOR:
As a member of the Regular Force or Special Force of the CF or a civilian CF elector, you may designate one of the following as your address for voting purposes:
- the place of ordinary residence of your spouse, your common-law partner,* a relative or a dependant, a relative of your spouse or common-law partner or person with whom you would live if you were not enrolled in or employed by the CF
- the place where you reside while serving in the CF
- your place of ordinary residence immediately before being enrolled in, or hired by, the CF
*A common-law partner is someone with whom a person resides in a conjugal relationship for at least one year.
Note: If you reside in the electoral district indicated on your SOR on civilian polling day and you have not already voted under the Special Voting Rules for CF electors, you may vote at the civilian polling station established for the address shown on your SOR.
