Ways to vote

There were six ways to vote in the April 4 provincial election in Saskatchewan.


1. Vote in advance

Advance voting is March 29 to April 2. You can vote at any advance voting location in your constituency on any one of these five days. Check your VIC for locations. Remember to bring ID.

Advance voting hours are:

March 29 to April 1, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Central Standard Time

April 2, Noon to 7 p.m. Central Standard Time

Use your home address to look up where your advance voting locations are.

2. Vote on election day

April 4 is election day, the last day to cast your ballot. All voting places across Saskatchewan are open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Central Standard Time. Your Voter Information Card (VIC) tells you where to vote. Bring your VIC with you to make your voting experience easier and faster, and remember to bring ID.

Use your home address to look up where you vote on election day.

3. Vote in a personal care home

Voting places will be set up in select personal care homes and seniors’ homes around Saskatchewan for the residents of those homes. You can find a list of voting places set up in personal care homes on the proclamation for each constituency.

4. Vote in a hospital

If you are a hospital patient on April 4 you can vote in the hospital you are in, even if it’s not in your home constituency.

5. Vote in your home (Homebound Voting)

If you are homebound due to a disability, you can make arrangements to have an election worker come to your home so you and your caregiver, if eligible, can both cast a ballot. Applications for homebound voting is now closed please  contact your local returning office if you have questions about your application.

6. Vote by mail (Absentee Voting)

If you are away from your constituency during the election you can vote by mail. This is a good option for students out of province, snowbirds spending the winter down south, members of the Canadian Armed Forces, or anyone else not in Saskatchewan or your constituency on April 4. Inmates in a provincial correctional centre may also be eligible to vote as an absentee voter.

To vote by mail, you first apply for an absentee ballot. It’s important to not wait too long to start this process. You need to allow enough time to:

  1. download an application from our website, available here  ;  download the French application here ;
  2. fill it in (you can print it and fill it in by hand, or you can fill it in electronically) and send it to your returning officer along with a copy of your ID;
  3. wait for a voting kit to arrive to you by mail shortly after the writ drops in early March; and
  4. mark your ballot and mail it back to us, postmarked by 8 p.m. on April 4.

If you have applied for Absentee Voting and have questions please contact your local returning office.
