There are 3 ways that you can qualify to vote in a municipality:

  1. As a resident elector if you live in the municipality. You may own, rent, live in shared accommodation where you do not pay rent or live in the municipality but do not have a fixed address. Being a resident elector is the most common type of eligibility.
  2. As a non-resident elector if you own or rent property in a municipality, but it’s not the one where you live. You can be a resident elector in only one municipality. However, you can be a non-resident elector in any other municipality (or municipalities) where you own or rent property.
  3. As the spouse of a non-resident elector if your spouse owns or rents property in the municipality or municipalities other than the one where you live. Neither you nor your spouse qualify as a non-resident elector if you do not personally own or rent the property in the municipality. For example, if the property is owned by your business or your cottage is owned by a trust, you would not qualify as a non-resident elector.

Students

There is a special rule for students who may be living away from home while they attend school. If you are a student and consider your “home” to be the place where you live when you are not attending school (that is, you plan on returning there), then you are eligible to vote in both your “home” municipality and in the municipality where you live while attending school.

Voter Notification Cards

Every person on the Town's Voter's List will receive a Voter Notification Card in the mail in mid-September before the advance voting days begin in early October. One package is sent to each address and includes cards for all eligible voters at the property. While you can vote anywhere, the cards will show convenient locations near you as well as dates and times. 

Make sure you bring your Voter Notification Card with you when voting to make it a fast and easy process. When you come to vote, you must bring a separate piece of identification that includes your name and address in order to receive a ballot. Please note that your Voter Notification Card cannot be used as identification. The preferred form of identification is a valid Ontario driver's licence or valid Ontario photo card. If you wish to use a valid health card (photo card only, red and white cards will not be accepted) or valid passport, we will require a second form of identification that shows your qualifying address such as a utility bill, property tax assessment, etc. 

Wards

The Town's wards have changed and come into effect on November 15, 2022, the first day of the new term of Council. Click on the map to confirm the ward you are currently eligible to vote in. Click here to view the list of candidates running in the ward where you live. 

If you live in the Town but own more than one property, you are only permitted to vote for the candidates running in the ward where you reside. If you are a non-resident elector and you own or rent properties in more than one ward in the municipality, you must choose one ward to vote in. Make sure that you are on the voters’ list for that qualifying address.
