Anyone can vote in a municipal election who, on the day of the election, is:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • A Canadian citizen; and
  • either a resident of the Township of a property owner or tenant or the spouse or same same partner of an owner or tenant in the municipality during a specified time just before the election.
Are you on the list to Vote?
  • You must be on the Voter list in order to be able to cast a ballot.
  • is an online service administered by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) available to eligible electors.  MPAC has provided a YouTube tutorial on how to use this service:

The voters list is prepared in three steps:

  1. A preliminary list is created by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) based on data it keeps on home ownership and tenancy.
  2. The preliminary list is sent to the municipal clerk in advance of a regular election which occurs every 4 years as noted above or after a by-election has been called.  The clerk can correct any errors on the list, and the corrected list then becomes the voters' list.
  3. Changes can be made to the list.  If you are not on the voters' list or if your information is incorrect (for example, you have moved but your former address is still showing on the list), you may apply to have your name added or to have your information corrected.  This may be done until the close of voting on voting day in a regular election or by-election.  You may have your name added to the voters list at the voting place.  We encourage everyone to bring photo id with them as you will be asked to provide proof of your eligibility to vote in this manner.
