Online registration Elections card
What if I can't register online?
You can register by mailing back your notice: review the information, make any required corrections, sign the notice and return it in the postage-paid envelope.
Why did I receive this voter registration notice?
We sent out notices to people who aren't registered to vote in federal elections but who may be qualified. The purpose of the notice is to confirm that you're qualified to vote and, if you're qualified, to ask you to register.
What happens when I register?
We add your information to the National Register of Electors, the database of people qualified to vote in federal elections. In future federal elections and referendums, we'll send you a voter information card that tells you when and where to vote. Because you're already registered, you'll enjoy faster service at the polls.
Do I have to re-register at every federal election?
Once you're on the National Register of Electors, you stay registered. You don't have to re-register at every federal election.
Where did you get my information?
We sent notices to people who consented to the transfer of their information to Elections Canada on their federal income tax return and to potential electors identified from provincial and territorial driver's licence files.
I'm not a Canadian citizen. What should I do with the form?
On the paper notice, tick the box that says you aren't a citizen, then return the notice in the pre-paid envelope. This will help us remove your name from the list of potential electors. If you become a Canadian citizen in the future, you can then register to vote.
What's the difference between a mailing address and a residential address?
Your mailing address is the one you commonly use to receive mail. It may include a P.O. box number, rural route or other specific mailing information. We need this address to mail you information, such as the voter information card we send out during elections.
Your residential address is the one you use to indicate your home, and it usually consists of a building number, street name, municipality name, province and postal code. We need this information to determine the riding in which you'll vote during an election.
