It is tax filing season again and Elections Canada invites all Canadian citizens filing their income taxes to check yes to share their basic information with Elections Canada. This is the easiest way for you to make sure you are registered at the correct address on the voters list and ready to vote in the next federal election.
On your T-1 tax form you are asked whether you are a Canadian citizen and whether you will allow the Canada Revenue Agency to share your name, address, date of birth and citizenship with Elections Canada which uses this information to update the National Register of Electors, the permanent, continually updated database of Canadians eligible to vote in federal elections. If you check yes, when the federal election begins you will receive by mail a personalized voter information card telling you when, where and ways to vote.
