A detailed list of authorized identification is available for information at the local school office or online at https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/1f4ebb64-0ba5-460d-ac43-9f8e59128d7d/resource/6d251d53-42c0-4b0d-afcb-6457fdf9ea0f/download/ma-local-elections-voter-id-2020-07.pdf

In addition, if your government-issued identification has a box number as your address you must produce a second document that contains your civic and/or legal land address. 

If you are unable to provide any identification, or cannot confirm your current physical address, you can be vouched for by another registered elector in your polling subdivision.
