Exercising your right to vote is your assurance of having your voice count and influence both the present and the future. Sadly, municipal elections rarely see at turn out greater than 50% of eligible voters. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs has prepared the 2018 Voters’ Guide for Ontario Municipal Council and School Board Elections , a downloadable pdf to ensure you have all the information you need to cast your vote.
If your name is on the Voters' List, you will receive a Voter Notification Card (VNC) by mail. This card provides you with information on where and when you can vote. Bring this card with you to the poll, to speed up the time it takes you to vote.
Up to six voters with the same last name, residing at the same address, will receive one envelope containing the VNCs.
