Permanent Register of Electors for Ontario
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. Updates are made to the Permanent Register of Electors for Ontario on an ongoing basis using information from federal, provincial and municipal data sources such as the National Register of Electors maintained by Elections Canada, and through direct updates from electors.
When an election is called, information from the Permanent Register of Electors for Ontario is used to create the Voters List for each electoral district.
You can use e-Registration to confirm, update or add your information to the Voters List in just a few easy steps. You will need to upload one piece of identification that has both your name and current residential address.
Being on the register has several benefits:
- You don’t have to register to vote for every provincial election,
- You’ll automatically be included on the Voters List for an election, and
- Elections Ontario will mail you a Voter Information Card informing you of when and where to vote once a general election or by-election in your electoral district has been called.
Voters List information is secure and used for authorized purposes only. You can find more details under Privacy of Personal Information.
