Before continuing to the secure Voter Registration Portal to check or 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 the Yukon for at least 12 months prior to polling day.
- NOTE: 16 and 17 years 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, are eligible to vote if they turn 18 years old on polling day.
- To register:
- You will need to supply your legal name, (even if you go by your middle name use 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, changed your name, or need to correct your civic address (primary residence) continue with registration.
A list of authorized 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 within a reasonable time to process. Be sure that current ID is submitted to verify change in address and name changes.
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. 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).
