Voters who will be unable to vote at an advance poll or on polling day during the upcoming Saskatchewan election can vote by “absentee ballot”. 

This is an option for voters, such as students, snowbirds and members of the Canadian Armed Forces, or anyone else who will be away from their constituency or the province when advance or regular voting occurs. Inmates in a provincial correctional facility may also be eligible to vote as an absentee voter.

Voters can download a copy of the application from our website here:

Apply to the Chief Electoral Officer up to 7 months in advance of polling day. After the election is called (writ day), you can also apply directly to your returning office. In either case, your application for an absentee ballot must be received at least 9 days before polling day.

Your completed application has to include a copy of your ID and a signed declaration. It can be post mailed, emailed or delivered to the Chief Electoral Officer at the below address:

Regina, SK   S4S 6W9


After an election is called, qualified voters will receive a voting kit in the mail. Your marked ballot has to be sent to your returning office by regular mail, registered mail, courier or it can be personally delivered.

Personally delivered ballots must be received by the returning officer before 8:00 p.m. on polling day. Mailed or couriered ballots must show that the ballot envelope was sent before the close of voting on polling day and must be received by your returning officer by 12:00 noon on the 10th day after polling day.
