To vote in a Canadian federal election or by-election you need to be able to prove your identity and your place of residence.
Elections Canada requires you to
- show one piece of government identification which shows your photo, name and residential address (e.g. a driver's licence)
- show two pieces of identification from an authorized list, with both containing your name, and one your residential address
- be vouched for by a voter whose name appears on the voters list in the same polling division who has acceptable pieces of ID. Both of you will have to make a sworn statement.
