What do I need to bring?

Make sure to bring:

I ordered a vote-by-mail package, but I forgot to mail it. Can I still vote?

You can still return your completed vote-by-mail package in person to the address on the pre-addressed return envelope in your special ballot voting kit.

If the return address is in Ottawa, your completed vote-by-mail package needs to be returned before 6pm Eastern Time tomorrow (Monday, September 20).

If the return address is the local Elections Canada office in your riding, your completed vote-by-mail package needs to be returned before the time the polls close in your riding tomorrow (Monday, September 20 — see voting times listed above).
