To register to vote in the federal election, choose among these options:
- Register online – most people can register online by providing the number from their driver’s licence or provincial or territorial ID card to confirm their identity. Register online by Tuesday, October 13 at 6:00 p.m.
- Register in person at your local Elections Canada office, between Monday, August 17 and Tuesday, October 13 at 6:00 p.m.
- Register by mail – on Monday August 17 or later, call your local Elections Canada office to request a registration form. Mail back the form, with a copy of your proof of identity and address, so the office receives it by Tuesday, October 13 at 6:00 p.m.
It’s possible to register at your advance or election day polling place, just before you vote. But it is easier and faster when you register ahead of time.
