If you’re still unsure or haven’t registered yet, do not worry, you can still vote at the polls before you place your ballot. You will need ID to confirm your identity and address, which, you can do with, one piece of government-issued ID with your photo, name and current address or two pieces of ID that have your name and at least one with your current address (these can include bills and electronic statements). If you don’t have ID with your current address you can have someone who is eligible to vote in the riding “vouch” for you at the polls. 

Check out other acceptable options for ID here! https://www.elections.ca/content2.aspx?section=id&document=index&lang=e

Note: The deadline to apply to vote by mail is Tuesday, September 14, at 6:00 p.m. Electors are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Step 2: Mark the special ballot

Electors will vote by mail using the special ballot voting process. Voting by special ballot is different than voting on election day or advance polling days. 

Step 3: Return the marked ballot

Electors must return their mail-in ballot to us in the prepaid envelope by election day.

Electors can also bring their marked special ballot to their local Elections Canada office or their polling station on election day.

Elections Canada provides voting information in 16 Indigenous languages and more than 30 other languages. If you are looking for translated materials, please visit Elections Canada: Guide to the Federal Election.
