Elections Ontario: Kitchener–Conestoga

Everything will be faster and easier on Election Day if you are registered.  But even if you are not registered come Election Day, with adequate ID you can still register and vote with the appropriate ID.  They don’t say it here, but if you don’t have a voter registration card, I think you should bring at least two pieces of ID, including photo ID:Who can vote? To be eligible to vote in a provincial election, you must be: • at least 18 years of age on election day; and • a Canadian citizen; and • a resident of Ontario

What identification do I need to vote? Electors who are on the Voters List will receive a Voter Information Card in the mail from Elections Ontario with information about when, where and how to vote. If you receive a Voter Information Card, you’re on the Voters List. Bring your Voter Information Card and one piece of ID that has your name to vote. OR If you do not receive a Voter Information Card, your name may not be on the Voters List. Bring one piece of identification that has your name and residential address to vote. Visit elections.on.ca to check if your name is on the Voters List

Examples of acceptable ID: • Ontario driver’s licence • Ontario photo card • Ontario motor vehicle permit • Statement of government benefits • CNIB ID • Band council identification • Bank statement • Credit card statement • Loan statement or agreement • Utility bill • Cell phone bill • Insurance policy or statement • Hospital record or document • Residential lease • Mortgage agreement or statement • Cheque stub, T4 slip or pay receipt • School admissions letter • Transcript or report card • School tuition or fees statement
