NEW REGISTRATION OR UPDATE
Before continuing to the secure registration portal to check to update your registration or to register, here is what you need to know:
To be included on the list of electors, on polling day you must be at least 18 years of age, a Canadian citizen and a resident of Yukon for at least 12 month.
NOTE: There are Future Electors who are 16 and 17 year olds who meet all other criteria to vote except age, as well as Provisional Electors who meet all other criteria to vote except the 12 months residency). Future and Provisional Electors can register abut will not be eligible to vote or be included in any List of Electors until they satisfy all requirements.
To register or update your registration you will need to supply your legal name, current civic address and date of birth. You will need to upload your identification. You can use a picture, document or other file.
A list of applicable identification is described here.
Updating information includes addresses and any other corrections. As well, you can add contact information to allow any follow up by email or telephone.
Once your information is verified at Elections Yukon you will be added to the register. You can check your status online to confirm your registration.
The register is a database used to produce list of eligible electors. A permanent register of electors has been established for future territorial elections. This replaces the territory-wide enumeration process. Lists of electors are created from this database.
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).
To be an elector, on polling day you must be:
- 18 years old
Note: 16 and 17 year olds can register if they meet all other requirements. They will not be eligible to vote until they reach 18 years of age. They will be added to the List of Electors when they reach 18 years of age.
- A Canadian Citizen
- A resident of the Yukon for 12 months prior to polling day
Note: A resident with less than 12 months residency on polling day may register but are not eligible to vote until they meet the 12 month residency requirement. They will not be included in the List of Electors until they meet the residency requirement.
Registration requires legal name, a civic address, proof of identification at the civic address, and a declaration that you meet all qualifications of age, citizenship and residency.
