Voter Information Cards
Elections Canada has started mailing a personalized voter information card to each registered elector. The card tells electors (voters) when and where to vote and has information about the accessibility of their polling station. All registered electors should receive their card by Sep 10. Cards are sent as polling locations are confirmed; some traditional polling locations are not available during the pandemic. If you don't receive your voter information card, you can always find your voter information on the Elections Canada website—see Related links below.
Guide to the Federal Election
The Guide has been mailed to every household in Canada by Elections Canada. If you are eligible to vote but have not received a voter information card showing your correct name and address, you should take steps to register to vote or update your registration by September 14. If you don't register by September 14, you can also register or update your voter information at your assigned polling place when you go to vote. To make things faster at the polls, you can enter your information online and print a pre-filled registration certificate to take with you—see Related links for more information.
Be Alert to Voter Scams
Elections Canada never texts or calls you about where and when to vote. They never share your phone number with political parties. If you see something that says it's from Elections Canada and you want to confirm that it's really from them, call 1.800.463.6868 or contact them online.
