Completing your tax return: Elections Canada
If you are qualified to vote, ticking YES in the Elections Canada section of your tax return is an easy way to update your voter registration. 

Elections Canada uses the information you provide to update the National Register of Electors (the Register), the data-base of Canadian citizens qualified to vote in the federal elections and referendums.  The register is used to prepare voters lists for federal elections and referendums and to communicate with voters.  The register is also used, under the Canada Elections Act, to provide voter information to provincial and territorial election agencies, members of Parliament, registered political parties and candidates at election time. 

Note that only persons who have Canadian citizenship and are 18 years of age or older are eligible to vote.  Generally, you are a Canadian citizen either by birth or if you have obtained Canadian citizenship through the formal process of becoming a Canadian citizen (naturalization).
