Yukon Electors Can Now Register Online For The Next Territorial Election

Date:  Monday, December 7, 2020

 

Elections Yukon continues to prepare for the next territorial election which will be called sometime before November 18, 2021.  Online registration can be used to register, check your registration, or update current registration information.  Registration makes it easier, faster, and more convenient to vote when an election is called. 

For the first time, 16 and 17 year olds are now be able to register.  To register, these future electors must meet all the elector eligibility requirements to vote except for age; they must be a Canadian citizen and be a resident of the Yukon of the 12 months prior to polling day.    A number of 16 and 17 year olds will be 18 years of age by polling day of the next territorial election and will be able to vote.

During the election period, registered electors (including the registered 16 and 17 year olds who will be 18 years of age by polling day), will receive a Voter Information Card which will detail voting options, contact information, and the places, dates, and times to exercise their right to vote.  

An elector can access online the following services at any time to:

  • Check to see if they are registered to vote
  • Update their voter information
  • Register to vote (including 16 and 17 year olds)

To use the service, visit electionsyukon.ca website home page where electors will have the option to check their registration, register, or update their registration.   Information is also provided to register by mail or email.  

To check registration online, electors will be prompted to enter their name, address, and date of birth.  If the electors record is found, and the information is correct, the registration will be confirmed.  If the record is not found, or information needs to be updated, there will be a prompt to upload a document or picture of the proof of identification.   A complete list of acceptable ID can be found at electionsyukon.ca under the Elector Information tab.

Elections Yukon encourages electors to use the new online service if they are first time voters, they are or will be moving, want to confirm they are registered, or to register as a 16 or 17 years old (must meet the other elector eligibility requirements).  Registration ensures a faster and more convenient experience to exercise the right to vote.
