How do I prove my identity and address?

You have three options to prove your identity:

  1. Show either your driver’s license OR any other card issued by a Canadian government (federal, provincial/territorial or local) with your photo, name and current address
  2. Show two (2) pieces of identification that include your name, with at least one of the pieces of identification having your current address on it.
  3. If you do not have identification, you can declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who knows you and who is assigned to your polling station vouch for you. The person vouching for you must be able to prove their identity and address. A person can vouch for only one person (except in long-term care institutions).

More information on how to prove your identity and which pieces of identification are accepted is available on Election’s Canada’s website.

You have two options to prove your address:

  1. Your piece of ID contains your address
  2. If you wish to vote using a different address than what is on your piece of ID, you will need to bring something else, such as a letter/form from your residence, a lease agreement, etc.
