Municipal election voting coming soon – here’s what you need to know
Voting for the upcoming Municipal and School Board Election gets underway this coming Monday at 10am until October 22nd at 8pm.
You can vote online or by telephone. Most communities in our listening area don’t have paper ballot voting, but there are exceptions, like the Township of Drummond/North Elmsley and the Township of Beckwith.
Some municipalities send out voter cards, while others, like Drummond/North Elmsley do not.
For those that do, you can check your voter card that you received in the mail to see which method you’ll be using.
In order to vote, you need to be on the Voters’ List. You can check to see if you’re on that list, by visiting voterlookup.ca.
If you aren’t on the list, you will need to visit your local Municipal Office.
You will need to show proof of identification with your name and qualifying address. A driver’s license or health card with picture ID will be accepted, along with a host of other pieces of identification. There is a long list of what will be accepted, and other voters’ resources found at the province’s municipal election website. Click here to visit it.
