Register of Absentee Electors

In Ontario, eligible electors temporarily living outside of the province have the option of adding their names to the Register of Absentee Electors. The Register of Absentee Electors is a list of Ontario electors who have moved out of the province less than two years before election day and who plan to return to Ontario. Some electors may be exempt from the two-year time limit. 

Electors on the Register of Absentee Electors will automatically be sent a special ballot kit for the general election on June 7, 2018 after the writs of election are issued on May 9, 2018. The special ballot kit will allow them to vote by mail using a write-in ballot. The deadline to apply to be on the Register of Absentee Electors for the 2018 General Election is June 1.

Please note that, if you are on Register of Absentee Electors, you will not receive a Voter Information Card.

If you live in Ontario but will be away during advance voting or on election day on June 7, you may be able to vote by special ballot.
