2018 Ontario General Election

Published: May 24, 2018

The FSU has compiled a list of frequently asked questions and resources in order to assist Fanshawe students in casting their 2018 Ontario General Election ballot.

Who can vote?
You can vote in the Ontario election if you are 18 years of age or older AND are a Canadian citizen AND a resident of Ontario.

When can I vote?
Election day is June 7, 2018. Polls will be open from 9 AM to 9 PM. Advance voting begins on May 26.

Where can I vote?
This depends on where you live. If you are studying somewhere in Ontario away from your permanent residence, you can choose to vote in the electoral district where you permanently reside OR in the electoral district in which you are temporarily living to attend school.

To find out where you can vote on election day, or in advance, enter your postal code into the Voter Information Service at:

Can I vote on campus?
The 1001 Fanshawe College Blvd campus in London will serve as a voting location on election day in J Gym 3 between 9 AM and 9 PM. You can vote at this station only if you live within this electoral district, either permanently or temporarily while living at school. Use the Voter Information Service link above to determine if you are eligible to vote at this station.

There is a letter available at the front desk of Peregrine house that students living in residence this Summer term can use to prove that they live on campus. You can go down anytime and get a copy of this letter.

What type of ID do I need to bring with me when I vote?
If you are on the Voters List, a Voter Information Card will be mailed to you between May 17 and 25. Bring this card and one piece of ID that has your name on it.

If you do not receive a Voter Information Card, your name may not be on the Voters List. Bring one piece of ID that has your name and residential address to vote.
