Option 2

Show two original pieces of identification authorized by the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada. Both pieces must have your name, and one must also have your address (e.g. health card and hydro bill).

Option 3

Swear an oath and have an elector who knows you vouche for you (e.g. a neighbour, your roommate). This person must have authorized identification and be from the same polling division as you. This person can only vouche for one person.

Staggered Voting Hours

The hours of voting on election day at a general election, or when by-elections are held on the same day in more than one time zone, have been staggered so that the majority of results are available at approximately the same time across the country.

Time Zone Polls open and close in local time
Newfoundland Time 8:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Atlantic Time 8:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Eastern Time 9:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Central Time* 8:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Mountain Time* 7:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Pacific Time 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

*In Saskatchewan, when daylight saving time is in effect for the rest of the country, voting hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (local time).

If an electoral district spans more than one time zone, the returning officer, with the prior approval of the Chief Electoral Officer, determines one local time for voting throughout the district.

When a by-election takes place in a single electoral district, or when by-elections are held in more than one electoral district in the same time zone, voting hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
