What ID do I need to vote?


To vote you need to prove your name and current address. There are three ways of doing this:

1)   Show one piece of government ID.

  • Drivers license or
  • Provincial card
  • Not a passport

  • Example C: passport (name only) and lease (name and address)

  • Show two pieces of ID with your name and
