You can vote by completing the Certificate of Identity and Residence.
City Council recently changed the rules to make witnessing easier. Any eligible voter may sign as a witness on another voter’s Witness Declaration Form.
You can vote once in the City of Saskatoon municipal election if, on Election Day (November 9, 2020) you:
- are a Canadian citizen
- are at least 18 years old
- have resided in the Province of Saskatchewan for at least six consecutive months immediately preceding Election Day, and
- have resided in the City of Saskatoon, or on land now in the city, for at least three consecutive months immediately preceding Election Day, or
- are the owner of assessable land in the City of Saskatoon, or on land now situated in the city, for at least three consecutive months immediately preceding Election Day;
If you live outside Saskatoon but own assessable land in Saskatoon for at least three consecutive months immediately preceding the day of the election, you can vote for mayor and ward councillor only. If you own land in more than one ward you can vote only in the ward where the property has the highest assessment. In this case you must obtain a certificate from the municipal assessor stating in which ward you are entitled to vote then present the certificate to the deputy returning officer when registering to vote at your dedicated polling location.
The easiest option is to use a government-issued photo ID such as a Driver’s License. However, if that is not possible, then two pieces of another ID can be used.
There are numerous allowable IDs.
If you do not have any of the allowable IDs listed and will be voting in-person, you are able to complete the Vouching for Identity form, and have one of these people vouch for you in person. The City of Saskatoon’s legislation states:
No voter shall vouch for more than one person in an election unless the persons to be vouched for are living at the same address as the voucher and are related to the voucher in one of the ways set out in Table 2 of Appendix D; and, A person who has been vouched for at an election shall not vouch for another person at that election.
