Guide to voting in 2015 election

Print Email

federal election voteSept. 7 - Recent changes to the federal Elections Act have changed how Canadians are eligible to vote in the Oct. 19 election.

In previous elections, a Voter Information Card could be used as a form of identification. That has changed and Canadians are only eligible if they can provide specific identification that indicates where you live.

Accepted forms of identification include:
- your current drivers licence with correct address
- your provincial identification card

- any other government card with your name, photo and address

If a person does not have any of these forms of ID, they must provide two pieces of ID and one must show your current address. A complete list of acceptable IDs are found on the Election Canada website.
