Voters can still register at polls, Elections Canada says
It's not too late to register to vote, according to Elections Canada.
While most Canadians are already registered for Tuesday's general election, eligible electors who aren't on the list can still vote by providing valid identification at the polling station for their address.

They could also register by taking an oath and having another registered voter in the same polling division vouch for them under oath.
In terms of physical ID, voters now have two choices:
- Government-issued photo ID with an address (but not a passport).
- Two pieces of ID without a photo, as long as one has your address. These can be bills, a health card or a library card.
Full details about the requirements to vote can be found on the Elections Canada website or by calling 1-800-463-6868.
Automated services are available 24 hours a day. Personal assistance is available from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. ET.
