  • Has resided in Manitoba for at least six months prior to election day.

Where do I vote?

Find out where you vote on Election Day by going to the Elections Mantoba website and using the "voters" drop-down menu.

How do I get my name on the Voters List?

Enumerators went door-to-door between July 21 and Aug. 22. Any voter missed by the enumerator can visit a local returning office during the revision period (Aug. 25 to Sept. 22). For the location of the returning office, consult the Elections Manitoba website.

Voters can also be added to the voting list on Election Day at the voting station, as long as they can provide photo identification that includes their address of residence, or two documents that establish the name and address of the voter (for instance, a Hydro bill and a card with a Social Insurance Number).

A passport can be used as one piece of identification as long as the other piece of identification has the voter’s address on it.

Voters can go online to the Elections Manitoba website and consult the locations of the voting stations. They can also call 945-3225 (locally from Winnipeg) or toll free 1-866-628-6837.

A voter who is physically unable to get to the voting station can apply to vote from home by contacting the returning officer.
