Starting May 1st, eligible voters can confirm they are on the voters’ list and add or update their information for Toronto’s 2023 by-election for mayor, taking place Monday, June 26. To appear on the final voters’ list, all revisions must be submitted to Toronto Elections by Friday, May 26.
The voters’ list identifies eligible voters, including their name and address. Checking the voters’ list early gives voters time to add their names to the list, or to make changes to their information, such as a change of address, leading to a faster and more efficient voting experience.
Residents can check if they are on the voters’ list by visiting Toronto Elections MyVote or calling 311.
Voter information cards will be mailed to eligible voters on the voters’ list starting Tuesday, May 23. The cards provide information about when and where to vote either during the advance vote from June 8 to 13 or on election day, June 26.
If an eligible voter on the voters’ list does not receive their voter information card in the mail, they can visit MyVote (www.toronto.ca/myvote) and print or upload a digital copy of their voter information card to their mobile device to show at their voting location. Eligible voters do not need a voter information card to vote and it cannot be used as identification. More information about voter information cards is available on the Toronto Elections webpage.
All voters are required to show identification with their name and qualifying Toronto address. A complete list of acceptable identification is available on the Toronto Elections Identification webpage.
The deadline to submit changes to the voters’ list is May 26. After that date, eligible voters can add their name to the voters’ list when they vote in person during the advance vote from June 8 to 13 or on election day, June 26.
More information about the voters’ list is available on the Toronto Elections Voters’ List webpage.
