Where do I vote?

You vote in the constituency where you are currently living. If you are a student and living away from home, you can vote in your home constituency or in the constituency where you are living while at school.

Each constituency will have a number of polls open on election day.

You are required to vote in the polling division in which you were ordinarily resident on the day election is called.

Find your voting location by going to the website for Elections Saskatchewan and entering your address on the main page, or go to the "Voters" section on the site. Here is a direct link to the site's Find My Constituency page.

How do I get on the Voters List?

Election officials in each constituency had enumerators go door-to-door between Sept. 8 and Sept. 26 to create a list of all eligible voters. Any voter who was missed may contact election officials in their constituency to be added to the voters list. For the contact information, consult the Elections Saskatchewan website.

If you missed the enumeration, and are an eligible voter, you can still vote on election day provided you follow a number of procedures:

  • You go to the polling station for where you live and make a declaration that you are an eligible voter and
  • Present identification documents proving your identity and place of residence, or have someone who is on the voters list vouch for you.

What I.D. do I need to vote?

All voters will need some form of identification. It can be:

  • One original piece of identification with your photo, name and address, issued by a provincial or federal government agency.
  • Two valid original identification documents or original documents. Both pieces must have your name and one must also have your address (for example, a social insurance card and a utility bill). Property tax bills, mortgage documents, a lease, a cheque book bearing your name and address, or a letter from a bank or other major corporation would also be acceptable evidence of your address. 

If you do not have I.D. with you, another voter — who has I.D. and who can confirm your identity and your place of residence — may vouch for you. This person can only vouch for one person. More information about voting is available on the website of Elections Saskatchewan.
