Interested in mailing in your ballot? Vote by mail, also known as absentee voting, has been offered in previous Saskatchewan elections. It will again be offered in the October 2020 provincial election.

Voting by mail is a two-step process.

First step

Complete an application for a vote by mail ballot. An online application tool will be launched mid-August 2020. Voters are encouraged to apply online well before election day.

If you prefer to submit a paper application today instead of waiting for the online tool you can do so by downloading the E-127 Vote by Mail Application here. Your completed application must include a copy of your ID (see table below). It can be scanned and emailed to [email protected], or physically mailed or personally delivered to:

Elections Saskatchewan
#310-3303 Hillsdale Street
Regina, SK  S4S 6W9

Second step

Once your application is approved, watch your mailbox for a voting kit. Note: Voting kits will be mailed out in late September. Inside the kit is a ballot to mark and a postage-paid return envelope. Use this envelope to mail your completed ballot back to Elections Saskatchewan and the above address.
