What to Bring When You Go to Vote:

  • Your voter information card (VIC).
    Although the VIC is not mandatory to vote, it identifies to the election officials that you are on the voters’ list and speeds up your time in the voting place. If you are on the voters’ list you should receive your VIC before Advance Voting begins. Starting September 17, you can check MyVote to ensure that your voter information is correct. You can also update your information or add your name to the voters’ list. This year MyVote has a new feature for those on the voters’ list that will allow you to print your VIC at home or download it to your phone.
  • Identification showing your name and Toronto address
    There is a requirement to show the election official acceptable identification to receive your ballot.  You do not need photo ID, just one piece of ID showing your name and address within the City of Toronto.
    The most popular forms of acceptable ID are:

    • Government Issued – a document issued by the government of Canada or province of Ontario, hospital card or record, tax documents, drivers licence, photo ID card
    • Bank Issued – credit card statement, bank account statement, cancelled personalized cheque, loan agreement
    • Utility Bill – Hydro, telephone or cable TV, water, gas or a bill from a public utilities commission
    • Employment Issued – Cheque stub, T4 statement or pay receipt issued by an employer, statement of direct deposit from Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program
