Election Guides

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.

Voter Identification requirements

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


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