What to bring to the polls

On election day, registered voters should bring their Voter Information Card to a voting station to make the process as quick and efficient as possible. If you are not on the voting list, you will need to show two pieces of identification and complete a voter registration form to be signed in front of an election official.

Before you vote, visit our online election planner

As part of the City’s commitment to using digital tools to improve how citizens interact with local government, a user-friendly election planner has been developed.

Using this simple tool, you can easily review the dozens of candidates and keep track of your favourites, then quickly find voting times and locations that fit your schedule. You can then generate a summary of your choices to print out or receive by email, plus get an automatic calendar reminder.
