We know many voters are asking themselves this question. This is a different election, and your voting experience will be different. When you vote by mail, you vote by special ballot. Once you have applied to vote by mail and we have approved your application, we mail you a special ballot voting kit that includes everything you need to vote. You fill out your ballot and mail it back to Elections Canada using a pre-addressed return envelope with prepaid postage. Your ballot must be returned by election day. Once you apply to vote by mail or at an Elections Canada office, you can’t change your mind and vote at advance polls or on election day. Visit elections.ca for more information on voting by special ballot and on the other ways you can vote.
