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've become a member by 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 via online ballot will be able to change their vote at any time before each round of voting ends.

Who’s eligible to vote?

In order to vote for the Leader, you need to become a member of the NDP no later than August 17, 2017. Don’t wait till the last minute to sign-up to make sure your membership is processed in time!

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