We maintain a register of names and addresses of people who are eligible to vote in Ontario, called the Permanent Register of Electors for Ontario, but more commonly known as the voters list.
You can add yourself to the voters list if you are:
- 18 years of age or older, and
- a Canadian citizen, and
- a resident of Ontario
Being on the voters list means you will be mailed a voter information card with information about when and where to vote once an election in your electoral district has been called.
If you’re 16-17 years old, you may be eligible for the Ontario Register of Future Voters.
If you’re temporarily living outside Ontario, you may be able to add yourself to the Register of Absentee Electors.
Information on the voters list is secure and used for authorized purposes only.
You can find more about how information on the voters list is secured and shared under Privacy and Security of Personal Information.
