Frequently Asked Questions
What if I don’t have any photo ID like a driver’s license?
 It doesn’t matter. Just bring anything else you have from the above list that has your
name and address on it.
Do I need more than one document?
 No, only one document with your name and address is needed. *
What if all of my documents have a post office box address?
 That is ok. As long as it makes sense that a person in your voting subdivision or ward
would have a post office box at your mailing address, it will be accepted. The post office
box doesn’t have to be in your voting subdivision or ward – just reasonably close by.
I used to have to sign a form to say that I am eligible. Do I still have to sign that form?
 Yes, you will still have to sign the Statement of Elector Eligibility as well as provide one of
the above documents that contains your name and address.
What if I don’t have any accounts or documents in my own name?
 Have your landlord, facility, or organization manager sign a letter or form (attestation) to
confirm your address, and bring it with you to the voting station. Your municipality may
have a form that you can use, so check with them. You will have to do this before you
come to vote, so plan ahead.
