Before continuing to the secure Voter Registration Portal to check your registration status, here is what you need to know:
- You will need to supply your legal name, (even if you go by your middle name enter your legal first name as it appears on your Government ID or Passport), current civic address (this is your primary residence not your mailing address) and date of birth. If you have moved or have changed your name, you will be required to make a new registration or update your information.
- If registered, your registration will be confirmed, and your electoral district identified. No identification is required.
- For communities outside Whitehorse, if you do not find your registration using an address, try using community only. In address type, select community only. From the dropdown community list choose the appropriate one.
- If you have a problem confirming your registration it may indicate a mismatch of your information, please click the New Registration or Update button below the Voter Registraiton Portal to proceed as a new registration.
- If your registration is not confirmed, you will be required to register or click the New Registration or Update button the Voter Registraiton Portal to proceed.
You will need to upload a copy of authorized identification with the current updated information. (you can use a picture, document, or other file). Copy of your Driver’s License or your Government ID is the most common for registering.
For New Registration or Updates
If you were registered for the 2016 Yukon territorial election or the 2019 federal election and are still at the same civic address (primary residence), you can check your registration status here.
With the establishment of the territorial register, a number of pre-existing address errors from previous voter lists will not allow confirmations. This is especially true for those from rural communities, those with property addresses on the Alaska Highway, North Klondike, and South Klondike Highways.
The register is a database used to produce a list of eligible electors. A permanent register of electors has been established for future territorial elections. This replaces the territory-wide enumeration process.
As well, once registered, there is no need to register for subsequent elections. Electors will receive a Voter Information Card early during the territorial election period with voting options, poll locations and times, and contact information. The voting process will be faster, simpler, and more convenient.
If not on the register, you will not receive a voter information card and you will be required to register each time you vote. You can also have your name removed from the voter list.
The next territorial election can be called no later than November 18, 2021. Age and residency requirements to be an elector are based on polling day (typically 31 days after the writ is issued).
