Election 2016

Updated 10 mos ago

If you are an elector and expect to be away at election time, you can still vote. Contact Elections Yukon before the election to:

  • get a special (write-in) ballot to cast your vote independently and confidentially

    or

  • appoint an elector from your electoral district to vote on your behalf (if you expect to be outside Yukon or in an isolated location)

    or

  • appoint a registered political party to designate an elector from your electoral district to vote on your behalf (if you expect to be outside Yukon or in an isolated location)

You may contact your Returning Officer to:

  • get a special ballot application (if you will be unable to vote at the advance polls and on polling day)
  • get a proxy application from your Returning Officer (if you will be outside Yukon)

During the election period, electors will have 3 days of in-person voting:

  • advance polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on October 30 and 31, 2016
  • polling stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on polling day, November 7, 2016

  • reside in supportive living facilities

  • require secure voting for reasons of personal security
  • are housebound
  • are hospitalized
