  • A picture proving that you are registered to vote (i.e., a selfie in front of the Elections Canada Online Voter Registration Service)
  • A picture of you with any other information tool created by Elections Canada.

Post your photo

  • Write a short description of the photo
  • Share your photo on EWC’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts.
