Election Day Reminders for Electors
Federal by-elections take place today
Gatineau, Monday, June 19, 2023
- Electors in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce–Westmount (Quebec), Oxford (Ontario), Winnipeg South Centre (Manitoba) and Portage–Lisgar (Manitoba) are heading to the polls today.
- Electors must vote at their assigned polling station. To find out where to vote, electors can check their voter information card, visit elections.ca or call 1-800-463-6868. Voting hours vary across Canada; electors can check elections.ca for voting hours in their riding.
- Electors who have not received a voter information card can find their voting locations by visiting elections.ca and entering their postal code in the Voter Information Service box.
- To vote, electors must be registered. Those who are not registered can register at their polling station when they go to vote. Unregistered electors can enter their information online, print a pre-filled registration certificate and bring it with them for faster service at the polls.
- To make the voting process easier, electors should bring their voter information card, along with accepted ID, when they go to their polling station. Electors must prove their identity and address. They can visit Election Canada’s website for a list of accepted ID or call 1-800-463-6868 for more information.
- Electors who want to minimise their wait time at the poll should avoid peak times, such as the opening of the polls in the morning and dinnertime in the evening.
- Electors voting by special ballot from inside their riding and who have not yet mailed back their completed ballot must return it in person at their local Elections Canada office; they have until the time polls close in their riding to do so. Special ballots received after polls have closed will not be counted.
- Preliminary results of the election will be published on elections.ca as soon as they become available.
- Candidates may send representatives (scrutineers) to observe ballot counting at polling stations, the Elections Canada office and other locations in the riding.
