Voting

We're always looking for new ways to better engage members like you in our Party – so we're launching an innovative voting process for our 2017 leadership race.

How will voting take place?

The ballot will be a preferential, ranked choice ballot where eligible voters can rank the candidates in their preferred order.

If you became a member before August 17, 2017, you are an eligible voter and may cast your ballot in one of two ways: a mail-in ballot or an online ballot. Only members who vote online will be able to change their vote in each round of voting.

Who’s eligible to vote?

In order to vote for the Leader, you need to be a current member of the NDP.

If you aren't sure if you're a member, fill out this form.
