Voting in Canada outside your home riding
Here are the ways you can vote from within Canada when you're outside your home riding.
1. At any Elections Canada office across Canada
There are over 500 Elections Canada offices open across Canada. Vote at any one of them before Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 6:00 p.m. You will vote using the special ballot process.
2. By mail
If you prefer, you can also:
- Mail your application form with a photocopy of your proof of identity and address to the address indicated on the form.
- Fax your application form with a photocopy of your proof of identity and address at 1-613-954-8584 or toll-free in Canada and the USA at 1-888-524-1444. Please note that fax is not considered a secure method of communication.
We must receive your completed application form with a photocopy of your proof of ID no later than Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.
Whether you apply online, by mail or fax, we will mail you a special voting kit once we review and approve your application. This kit includes:
- a special ballot
- a blank white envelope
- an envelope with your name, riding, and a space where you can sign
- a return envelope
- voting instructions
Once we mail the kit to you, your only way to vote in this federal election will be by mail. You won't be allowed to vote in person.
To count your vote, we need to receive your marked ballot by election day on Monday, October 21, 2019, 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.
