Frequently Asked Questions about Mail In Ballots:

How do I request a mail in ballot?
You can request a mail in ballot online from Elections Canada at https://www.elections.ca/content2.aspx?section=vote&dir=app&document=indexapp&lang=e

Can I request a mail in ballot without going online?
You can request a mail in ballot in person from your local returning office. However, if you visit your local returning office it is easier to simply vote in person via special ballot.

What is the deadline to request a mail in ballot?
The deadline to request a mail in ballot is Tuesday, September 14th. Bear in mind that it will be delivered by Canada Post so it is important to request your mail in ballot as soon as possible.

What should I write on my ballot?
You must write the name of your nominated candidate, Connie Cody. Ballots with “CPC”, “Conservative”, “Erin O’Toole”, etc. will not count.

How do I put my ballot package together?
Your marked ballot (where you have written Connie Cody’s name) goes in Envelope A (Inner Envelope). Envelope A goes inside Envelope B (Outer Envelope). Sign the declaration on the outside of Envelope B. Envelope B goes inside Envelope C (Return Envelope). The package is postage paid, so you do not need a stamp.

What do I do if I’m worried my ballot will not be received by September 20?
If you are concerned that your mail in ballot will not be received on time you can take it to your local returning office on or before election day, or to a polling station in your riding on election day. All ballots must be received by the close of polls on election day.

Will our campaign be able to help our supporters request mail in ballots?
The campaign cannot register on someone’s behalf, but we can provide assistance. Please reach out if you need help!

Can I track my request for a ballot/track receipt of my ballot?
When you register to vote by mail, you will be assigned a reference number to track the approval of your application and its progress at https://ereg.elections.ca/eStatus.aspx?lang=e.
