Where to vote
You can find your polling station by entering your postal code here.
If you’re not registered to vote
To vote, electors must be registered. Those who are not registered can register at their polling place when they go to vote. Unregistered electors can enter their information online, print a pre-filled registration certificate and bring it with them for faster service at the polls.
What ID you need to vote
Option 1: Show one of these pieces of ID
- your driver’s licence
- any other card issued by a Canadian government (federal, provincial/territorial or local) with your photo, name and current address
Option 2: Show two pieces of ID
- Both must have your name and at least one must have your current address, like your voter information card and a bank statement, or your utility bill and student ID card. See the list of accepted ID for Option 2 here.
Option 3: If you don’t have ID
You can still vote 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. A person can vouch for only one person (except in long-term care facilities).
To maintain a safe environment for electors and election workers, Elections Canada strongly encourages electors to wear a mask when they go to vote, even in places where masks are not required by the province, territory or region. They will require electors to wear a mask where one is required by the province, territory or region or by the landlord leasing the space.
Electors who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons will not be required to wear one.
Electors will be required to practice physical distancing, which may mean they have to temporarily line up in hallways or outside the polling place.
When will I know who won?
Preliminary results of the election will be published on elections.ca as soon as they become available.
Given the number special ballots received, Elections Canada expects most of the country’s 338 ridings to report the results of their local special ballot count on Tuesday, September 21, and the vast majority to finish counting by Wednesday, September 22. However, the full count may take up to four days in some ridings.
