Voting by mail is easy and safe!
The option to vote by mail is a safe and easy way to make sure your voice gets heard on election day! The information we are providing below was taken directly from the Elections Canada website.
In order to vote by mail you need to complete a few steps
- Visit the Elections Canada website and click to apply to vote in the October 26th, 2020 federal by-election in the electoral district of Toronto Centre
- Answer the questions that follow
- Open the PDF for Registration and Special Ballot

With your application you must provide clear copies of your proof of identity and address. This can be done in ONE of three ways
- Provide one piece of government-issued ID
- Provide two pieces of ID
- Provide an affidavit
You can then send in your application in one of three ways
- By Mail
- By Courier
- By Fax
*Elections Canada is suggesting these applications be sent by fax*
- Application must be received by the Elections Canada office by October 20th at 6pm, this means, if you are sending in your application by mail, it must be posted in time for it to arrive before 6pm on October 20th.
- Your request will then be processed by Elections Canada and you will be sent a ballot to fill out and MAIL back to the local Elections Canada office. For Toronto Centre the address is:
TD Canada Trust Tower

Toronto, ON, M5J 2S1
The most common reason for a mail-in ballot being denied is an unclear picture that Elections Canada staff cannot read, so make sure the copy is clear and can be read.
