No matter what people may tell you your vote DOES matter, if it didn't we wouldn't have fought so hard to get it and protect it throughout the years.

Because I've fought to help people in other countries establish their own right to vote, I am including the information you need to know to enable you to vote in this election or any election here in Ontario, so take advantage of it to have your say.

 

What do I do to have my name added to the Register?

To apply for personal addition to the Permanent Register of Electors for Ontario, please complete the attached ‘Application for Addition to the Permanent Register of Electors for Ontario' form and submit it with photocopies of proof of identity and proof of residence.

During an election period With the appropriate identification, you may have your name added to the Permanent Register at the Returning Office in your electoral district, at any of the advertised revision sites, or at the poll on election day.

Can someone else act on my behalf to have my name added to the Register?

Yes. As long as they provide the appropriate identification in your name. An eligible voter may act for family members and for one unrelated person. Anyone who is not an eligible voter may act for only one other person.

Does my name have to be on the Permanent Register of Electors in order to vote?

No. Even if your name is not on the Register your right to vote is still protected.

However, to be able to vote in an election or by-election, you will need to obtain a Certificate to Vote from the Returning Office or from a Revision Assistant. You can also register to vote at a poll on election day. You must provide appropriate identification. You will be asked if you would like to have your name added to the Permanent Register. If you choose not to, simply advise the Revision Assistant.
