Here’s what you need to do:

As a result of Bill C-23, the Fair Elections Act, voters at polling stations need to show:

  • PROOF OF IDENTITY (ID) and PROOF OF ADDRESS

 

When you go to cast your vote—whether it be on Election Day, or at the Advance Polls, or anytime at the Returning Office—remember to bring:

1 PIECE OF ID with photo, name, and address, such as:

  • Driver`s licence
  • Ontario Photo ID

OR 2 PIECES OF ID: one with name and one with name/address, such as:

  • Health card and phone bill
  • Passport and bank statement
  • Birth Certificate and utility bill

 

No proof of address?

If none of your ID has your current address, take an oath

Show two pieces of ID with your name and have someone who knows you attest to your address. This person must show proof of identity and address, be registered in the same polling division, and attest for only one person.

If you are living in residence, get a letter of confirmation

Show one piece of ID with your name, and bring a letter of confirmation of residence, letter of stay, admission form or statement of benefits from one of the following designated establishments:

  • Student residence
  • Senior’s residence
  • Long-term care facility
  • Shelter
  • Soup kitchen
