Proof of identity and current residence is required to be able to vote in municipal elections in Alberta. Any of the following documents that include the elector’s name and address will be accepted: 

  • Photo identification issued by a Canadian government or agency, whether federal, provincial or local, or an agency of that government that contains a photograph of the elector and their name and current address; 
  • Bank or credit card statement or personal cheque; 
  • Correspondence issued by a school, college or university; 
  • Government cheque or cheque stub; 
  • Income or property tax assessment notice; 
  • Insurance policy or coverage card; 
  • Letter from a public curator, public guardian or public trustee; 
  • Pension Plan statement of benefits, contributions or participation; 
  • Residential lease or mortgage statement; 
  • Statement of government benefits: e.g. employment insurance, old-age security, social assistance, disability support, or child tax benefit; 
  • Utility bill: e.g. phone, public utilities commission, television, electricity, gas or water; 
  • Vehicle ownership, registration or insurance certificate; or 
  • A letter or form confirming that the person lives at the stated address. The letter can be signed by any of the following: 
    • authorized representative of a commercial property management company; 
    • authorized representative of a correctional institution; 
    • authorized representative of a First Nations band or reserve; 
    • authorized representative of a post-secondary institution; 
    • authorized representative of a facility that provides services to the homeless; or 
    • authorized representative of a supportive living facility or treatment centre. 

If the elector’s identification shows a post office box number as the address instead of a residential or legal address, it will be accepted as verification of current address if, at the discretion of the Presiding Deputy Returning Officer at the voting station, it is in reasonable distance to the local jurisdiction in which the elector is seeking to vote. The post office box address does not need to be within the municipal division in which the elector is seeking to vote.
