Apply to Vote by Mail

Eligible electors can apply to vote by special ballot. With a special ballot, you can vote by mail from anywhere in the world.

If you live in Canada, you may apply once an election is under way.

If you live abroad, you may apply anytime—click the button below:

A by-election will be held on October 24, 2016, in the electoral district of Medicine Hat–Cardston–Warner (Alberta)

The deadline to apply to vote by mail has passed; it was October 18, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

If you do not have a special ballot, you cannot vote by mail. Please vote at your election day polling place on October 24, 2016.

If you have a special ballot, return it before the deadline: your marked special ballot must be received by Elections Canada by Monday October 24, 2016. Follow the instructions in your special ballot voting kit regarding when and where to return your marked ballot.

Your options for applying to vote by mail depend on your situation. Click on "Apply to vote by mail" to see your options.
