Federal Election 2019, voting information
- | October 01, 2019
Voting is your right, use it. Your voice needs to be heard so get out and make your vote count. Here is the information you need to know to register and vote in the upcoming Federal election.
General Election - Monday, October 21, 2019
Saskatchewan voting hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Your voter information including riding (electoral district), local Elections Canada office and candidates list is available by entering your postal code (or other information) on the Elections Canada website at http://www.elections.ca.
How to register
To register you must be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years old on election day and prove your identity and address.
You can register at the polls when you go to vote, but if you're registered before the election, you should get a voter information card in the mail by October 4. It tells you where and when you can vote.
You can check if you are registered at your current address, update your address or register to vote:
- online at the Online Voter Registration Service BEFORE October 15 at 6PM,
- in person at any Elections Canada office BEFORE October 15 at 6PM,
- by telephone 1-800-463-6868 BEFORE October 15 at 6PM,
- at your assigned polling station on advance polling days October 11, 12, 13 or 14, or
- at your assigned polling session on election day.
Where to vote
- At your assigned polling station on advance polling days or election day,
- in person at any Elections Canada office BEFORE October 15 at 6PM, or
- by mail if you apply BEFORE October 15 at 6PM (Eastern time).
If you need a language interpreter or other assistance, you need to complete an online request or contact your local returning officer at least six days before voting.
Note: Elections Canada never texts or calls electors about when and where to vote. We also never share your phone number with political parties.
The identification you need to vote
You must prove your identity and address to vote in the federal election. There are three ways to do this:
Option 1: Show your driver’s license OR any other card issued by a Canadian government (federal, provincial/territorial or local) with your photo, name and current address.
Option 2: Show two pieces of ID, both with your name and at least one must have your current address. Examples:
voter information card and Status Card
Métis card and utility bill with your current address
Saskatchewan Health Card and letter of confirmation of residence from a First Nations band or reserve local authority
Option 3: If you don’t have ID, you can still vote if you declare your identity and address in writing and have someone who knows you and who is assigned to your polling station to vouch for you. The voucher must be able to prove their identity and address. A person can only vouch for one person (except in long-term care institutions).
