Identification Requirements to Vote at a Nomination Meeting

In order to be eligible to vote at a Team Trudeau 2021 Nomination Meeting, an individual must be a Registered Liberal by the deadline published in the notice. To see all meeting notices, click here.

Registered Liberals who are eligible to vote must confirm their identity and address through an electronic ID verification process.

To help ensure the integrity of our voting process, there are two options to prove your identity and address:

Option 1: Automated ID verification

If you have a Canadian provincial or territorial driver’s licence that contains your photo, name and current home address you will be able to verify your identity through our secure automated ID verification portal. In order to verify your identity, you will be asked to take a photo of the front and back of the driver’s licence as well as a selfie so we can match you against your ID. The automated ID verification requires a computer with a webcam or a mobile phone/tablet with a camera and access to a web browser. The Liberal Party of Canada takes your privacy seriously and our privacy policy is available here. The party does not store any of these images – we only use them to confirm your identity.

Option 2: Manual ID verification

If you prefer to use a manual identity verification process or do not have a driver’s licence, you will be able to verify your identity with a live Liberal Party of Canada meeting official over video. In order to verify your identity, you will be asked to provide a piece of government issued ID that contains your photo, name and current home address, or two forms of identification that, when combined, contain your photo, name and current home address. The online manual ID verification requires a computer with a webcam or a mobile phone/tablet with a camera and access to a web browser.

Examples of acceptable pieces of photo ID:

  • Canadian passport
  • Canadian citizenship card
  • Canadian permanent resident card
  • Provincial or territorial ID card
  • Health card, as permitted to be used for identification purposes under provincial law.
  • Student ID card

Examples of acceptable documents that contain your name and current home address:

  • Government cheque or cheque stub
  • Government statement of benefits
  • Bank or credit card statement
  • Utility bill
  • Lease
  • Insurance statement
  • Correspondence or timetable issued by a school, college, or university

Please note: Liberal Membership Cards, Donor Cards, or any other card issued by the Party are not valid pieces of identification.

The information on your identification documents should match the information we have on file for you. If you have recently moved, please update your contact information here.
