RESOURCES FOR BY-ELECTIONS (2016-2018)

The Ministry has produced two election guides – one for voters and one for candidates – in order to make election information easier to find and more user-friendly.

Are you voting in a by-election?

Voters are required to show identification in order to vote. If your name is on the voters’ list, you will be required to show one piece of identification that has your name and address on it in order to receive a ballot. The requirement to show identification that has your signature on it has been removed. 

List of acceptable documents for voter identification

Your municipality may allow you to appoint a voting proxy if you will be unable to get to a voting place to cast your ballot.  To appoint a voting proxy, both you and the person you wish to appoint must fill out the Appointment for Voting Proxy form.

Are you running in a by-election?

Prescribed forms such as the nomination form and campaign financial statement have been updated. Updated forms can be downloaded from the Central Forms Repository
