Identification requirements for voters:

Voter Identification Matters

The purpose of the voter ID requirements is to maintain the integrity of local election processes. Your name and address must appear in some form on your voter identification documents. Bringing proper identification will ensure your voice is heard and will help your local election run as smoothly as possible.

Photo ID - Your BEST option to take to the polls

Acceptable photo identification is ID that is government-issued, valid and has your photo, name and address. If your identification does not meet these criteria it will not be recognized as an acceptable form of photo identification.

Examples include:

  • A valid Saskatchewan Driver's Licence. (If you still have a two-piece licence, make sure you have both pieces).
  • A valid Saskatchewan ID card issued by SGI or any motor licence issuer. (Available for $10 or free for seniors).
  • Any other valid government issued photo ID issued by a Canadian government whether federal, provincial or municipal, or an agency of that government, so long as it includes your name and address.

A Canadian passport is not an acceptable form of photo identification because it does not contain your address. However, a Canadian passport can be used as identification if paired with another document that has your name and address on it. 

Non-Photo ID Options

If you don't have photo identification and are unable to obtain photo-ID before Election Day, you can present two other pieces of information, as long as both contain your name and at least one contains your address.

Examples include:

  • Valid ID cards or certificates issued by the Canadian or Saskatchewan government, a Saskatchewan municipality or school division, a Saskatchewan Indian band, the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan or an agency of one of these entities.
  • Personal correspondence, benefit/contribution statements and tax/assessment notices issued by any of the above entities.
  • Bank/credit union cards, credit cards and statements.
  • Utility bills and statements issued within six months of the date of the election.
  • Personalized attestation of residence, letter of stay or admission form issued by a seniors or student residence, long term care or shelter facility.
