Voters should now have information cards

OTTAWA – Electors who did not receive a  voter information card by Oct. 4, or who received an inaccurate card, can register or update their address online or by contacting their Elections Canada office.

The personalized cards, mailed to each registered elector, includes information on where to vote and about the accessibility of the polling station.

Electors should contact the Elections Canada office in their electoral district if:

– the name on their card contains an error; or

– they receive a voter information card for a deceased person or someone who does not live at their address.

If, due to unforeseen circumstances, the location of a poll changes after the cards are mailed, electors will receive another voter information card with the words “replacement card” on the bottom right corner.

To vote, electors must show proof of identity and address (the voter information card may be used as a proof of address).

Electors do not need to bring their voter information card to the polls to vote, but are encouraged to bring it with them for faster service.
