Posted: 2019-10-21 07:27:59 By: hbr
Elections Canada says that in order to vote in today’s federal election, you need to:
• be a Canadian citizen;
• be at least 18 years of age;
• and prove your identity and address.
You can check if you are registered to vote here.
At the polling station, you will need to prove your identity and address. The government requires you to do this in one of three ways:
1. Bring one piece of ID
o Your driver’s license
o Any other card issued by a Canadian government that contains your name, address and photo.
2. Show two pieces of ID
o Both must have your name and at least one must have your current address, an example would be your voter information card and bank card or utility bill or student ID card
3. If you don’t have ID
o According to the Elections Canada website, you can still vote without ID if you declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who knows you and who is assigned to your polling station vouch for you. The voucher must be able to prove their identity and address.
