How do voters cast a ballot?


First, make sure you are registered to vote by August 21 for voting by phone, or September 2 for online voting. That means that you are either registered as a “supporter” or you are a party member in good standing (your dues are all paid up).

The vast majority of voters will vote online using a system called SimplyVoting. This is a secure Canadian system used by political parties, unions and local governments across the country.

Voting will take place from September 5, 2020, 1:00PM–September 13, 2020, 11:59PM. 

Registered voters who have an email address will be emailed their voting credentials by September 5. With those credentials, you will log into SimplyVoting and mark your preferences.

Those who do not have an email address must register to vote by August 21 and will be mailed their telephone credentials by post on August 28. Telephone voters will call the number provided, enter their credentials and enter their preferences.

Once you have submitted your ballot online or by phone, you cannot return to change it.

The results will be announced on September 14.
