What to Bring to the Polls

Voter Information Card (VIC)

Although the VIC is not mandatory to vote, it confirms with election officials that you are on the voters’ list and speeds up your time in the voting place. If you are on the voters’ list you should have received your VIC before advance voting days.

Identification with Your Name and Toronto Address

You are required to show the election official acceptable identification to receive your ballot.

You do not need photo ID, just one piece of ID showing your name and address within the City of Toronto.

The most common forms of acceptable ID are:

  • Government Issued – a document issued by the government of Canada or province of Ontario, hospital card or record, tax documents, drivers licence, photo ID card
  • Bank Issued – credit card statement, bank account statement, cancelled personalized cheque, loan agreement
  • Utility Bill – Hydro, telephone or cable TV, water, gas or a bill from a public utilities commission
  • Employment Issued – Cheque stub, T4 statement or pay receipt issued by an employer, statement of direct deposit from Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Program
