Voter Registration

A person must be registered with Elections NL in order to vote in an election. To register today you may download and complete the VR-21 form from the Forms and Guides section.

While registration can be done at the time of voting, registering today will greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to vote. Furthermore, prior to an election, we send registered electors a Voter Information Card (VIC) which details where, when and how you may vote.

You can also contact us by phone, toll-free or locally, at (1-877) 729-7987or by e-mail, to determine if you are on the voters list or if you have:

  • recently turned 18
  • changed residence
  • recently moved to this province
  • changed your name

Voter Requirements

A person must meet the following requirements to vote:

  • Canadian citizen
  • minimum 18 years of age
  • resident of NL the day before polling day
  • resident of the district in which the person is voting on polling day

At the poll, an eligible elector may vote even if his/ her name is not on the voters list. He/she must take an oath and produce the necessary identification at the polling station.
