Voter Information

Who Can Vote

Eligible voters must be:

  • At least 18 years of age on election day;
  • A Canadian citizen;
  • A resident of Saskatchewan for at least six consecutive months immediately preceding election day; and 
  • A resident of the municipality or owner of assessed land in the municipality for the past three months.

Voter Identification

  • Photo ID (Your BEST option to take to the polls)

You require only one original piece of identification if it has your photo, name and address and it is issued by a federal, provincial, or municipal government. Most people use their Saskatchewan Driver’s License. If you are a non-driver, you may obtain photo identification from Saskatchewan Government Insurance at little or no cost. If your identification does not meet these criteria, it will not be recognized as an acceptable form of photo identification.

Please note:

A Canadian passport is not an acceptable form of photo identification because it does not contain your address. However, a Canadian passport can be used as identification if paired with another document that has your name and address on it.

How to Vote

Eligible voters can vote at the polling stations set up in the Town of Rosthern. Voters can check the published and posted Notice of Poll for the location of their polling place. Polling stations are open from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm on election day.

Instructions on how to vote are posted at all polling stations. If you need help the Deputy Returning Officer who gives you the ballot will assist you.

The names of the candidates are listed on the ballots for each office. The names of candidates will be in alphabetical order. The candidate's occupation, if any, is printed beneath the candidate's name.

You may vote for only one candidate, by making a distinct "X" in the space beside the candidate's name. The ballot is secret.
