VOTE!

This election is getting more and more exciting and it’s so important that you vote.

Wondering how you go about doing that?

Check out the Elections Canada website.

You can find out where your riding is and where you go to vote.

You need to bring identification with you.

You have three options:

Option 1 Show one original piece of identification with your photo, name and address. It must be issued by a government agency.

Example: Driver’s license

Option 2  Show two original pieces of authorized identification. Both pieces must have your name and one must also have your address.

Examples: Health Card and Utility Bill

***Your passport can be used as ID, but it must be accompanied by a second piece of ID that has your address on it.

Option 3 Take an oath and have an elector who knows you vouch for you (both of you will be required to make a sworn statement). This person must have authorized identification and their name must appear on the list of electors in the same polling division as you. This person can only vouch for one person and the person who is vouched for cannot vouch for another elector.

Examples: a neighbour, your roommate.

It is important to remember that your voter card CANNOT be used as official ID.

Go to the Elections Canada website for a full list of acceptable ID.

You have to register to vote, but if you’re not registered yet, don’t worry!! You can do it at the polling station and it only takes a few minutes.
