Information for Voters

Saskatoon voters, you will be asked to fill in a Voter Registration Form upon your arrival at any voting location.

To save time at the polls, we encourage voters to fill out a Voter Registration Form before you arrive to vote. Download form here. The Voter Registration Form will also be made available in the 2020 Voter's Guide sent to residents in mid-October, prior to early voting days (October 30-November 5).

The Saskatoon Civic Election does not use a voter's list so there is no voter card sent out prior to voters. This process is used in the provincial election.

Why vote in Saskatoon’s 2020 Civic Election?

Decisions made by municipal governments have a greater effect on residents’ lives than those made at the federal or provincial level. Municipal policies tend to have a larger impact on citizens’ quality of life and well-being. Municipal government provides the civic services we all rely on every day and value, impacting your community today and in the future.

Yet, voter turnout in municipal elections tends to be lower than other levels of government. Voter turnout in Saskatoon, however, has continued to increase every four years.
