Reliable information on the electoral process

The Internet is full of information. Some is reliable, but some can be either mistakenly misleading (misinformation) or purposely misleading (disinformation). During an election, there may be more information available than usual. To exercise your right to vote, it is important that you have accurate information.

Elections Canada is the official source for information about the federal election process. Look to us for facts about where, when and the ways to register and vote, and about the safeguards in the electoral process.
