Voting in the 2015 Federal Election – First Things First …

vote_red… and foremost – You need to be registered before you can vote.

Here are the options as taken from the FAQ section of the Elections Canada website.

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.
