Register of Absentee Voters

Register of Absentee Voters is only for eligible provincial electors temporarily living outside of Ontario who intend to return to Ontario.

To be eligible to register as an absentee voter, you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older;
  • a Canadian citizen;
  • temporarily residing outside of Ontario;
  • a resident of Ontario for at least 12 consecutive months before leaving; and
  • intent on returning to Ontario.

You are eligible as an absentee voter for up to two years from the date you left Ontario.

Eligibility to vote in an Ontario provincial election as an absentee voter does not automatically make you eligible to vote in local elections as a non-resident.
