Here are some key resources to help you through the voting process
If you didn’t take advantage of early voting then you’ll still get your chance on Election day — Monday October 19! There’s a few things you can do before you vote:
- Check to make sure you’re registered on the Elections Canada site. If you’re not registered, don’t worry! You can register at your poll on October 19.
- You must prove your identity and address to register and vote in a federal election. If you don’t have picture ID, there are a number of ID options when you are voting in person – at an Elections Canada office, at advance polls or on election day.
- Find out which riding you’re in, and which candidates are running in that riding.
Here are some resources to get you started:
- What ID do can I use to vote?
- Ways to vote
- What are each of the parties all about?
- Who are the candidates in my riding?
Other unofficial resources:
- How did my MPs vote?
- How do my views align with those of the candidates running for election?
- Your voice matters. Pledge to vote.
Voting is a privilege that many people around the world don’t have; it’s also a responsibility of a citizen in a democracy. Voting is one very important way you get to participate in the democratic process. Every vote counts, and your vote can make a difference, so please take some time out of your day and VOTE!
