Gatineau, Thursday, October 15, 2015

"Voters have a wide range of options to prove their identity and address at the polls," says Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand. "They may use their driver's licence or a combination of pieces of ID. I encourage voters to check our website for the full list of accepted pieces of ID to ensure they have what they need to vote."

Elections Canada is an independent body set up by Parliament.
