Fraser Valley – By now, or at least this week, you should receive your Voter Information Card from Elections Canada.
To register and vote in the federal election, you must be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years old on election day, and prove your identity and address.
Why register before the election?
To vote in a federal election, you must be registered on the list of electors. You can register when you go to vote. If you register before October 15, 6 p.m., you will get a voter information card in the mail. It tells you where and when you can vote.
Bring your voter information card with you, along with accepted ID, to make the voting process easier.
Your voter information card:
- shows election workers that your registration is up to date
- shows a polling number to help election workers direct you to the right table
How do I update my voter information?
You can update your address information using the Online Voter Registration Service. For any other changes to your current registration, visit your local Elections Canada office before Tuesday, October 15, 6 p.m.
Otherwise, update your voter information at your assigned polling station before you vote on advance polling days, or on election day, Monday, October 21.
