Make sure you're ready to vote!


To vote in a federal election, you must first register:

  • online
  • by mail or
  • at the polls when you go to vote.

You will have to confirm that you:

  • have Canadian citizenship and
  • will be at least 18 years old on election day.

Being on the Register


  • Being on the Register at your current address will ensure that, at election time, you receive a personalized voter information card that tells you:
    • where
    • when and
    • the ways to vote.
  • It will save you time when you go to vote, as you won't have to register on site.
