How do I cast my ballot?

The CSRD uses same-day registration. You can register to vote at a polling station at an Advanced Voting Opportunity or on General Voting Day.  A list of polling stations in your area can be found at the Voter Information page. Mail-in ballots are also available. 

You must have two (2) pieces of identification that prove who you are and where you live. The ID must show your residential address and one of them must have your signature. If your ID does not show your residential address, you can make what is called a “solemn declaration” as to your residence.  The voting clerk will have the form you need to use to make that declaration. Examples are: a Driver’s Licence, Care Card, Credit Card or a utility bill or tax notice. 

Please note that a combined Driver’s Licence/Care Card is considered to be only one (1) piece of identification.
