  • on election day, on Monday, October 19
  • at advance polls on Friday, October 9; Saturday, October 10; Sunday, October 11; or Monday, October 12
  • in person at any of the 400+ Elections Canada offices across the country, before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13
  • by mail. Electors must apply to vote by mail before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13
    • Electors can submit their application online or mail a paper application form.
    • Forms are available online and at any Elections Canada office or Canadian mission abroad. They can also be requested by calling 1-800-463-6868.
    • Electors voting by mail should plan ahead. They must allow time for their voting kit to reach them and for their marked ballot to return to Elections Canada.
    • Marked ballots must be received by the election day deadline or they will not be counted. Visit elections.ca for more details.
  • To vote, electors must show proof of identity and address. The list of accepted pieces of identification is online.

"I encourage Canadians to look at the different voting options and choose the one that works best for them," says Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand. "Whether you vote at the regular or advance polls, in person at an Elections Canada office or by mail, there's an option that's right for you
