How Can I Register to Vote?

How is the voters’ list generated and how do I find out if I’m on it?

The voters’ list is created and provided to us by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). Click here to read more about MPAC's role in Municipal and School Board Elections

To make sure you’re on the voters’ list and your information is correct, visit the “Am I on the Voters’ List?” section of this site.

Voters are encouraged to check their information on the voters’ list as soon as possible. Any changes made after September 12, 2022, may not be reflected on a Voter Information Letter.

What happens once I’m registered and on the voters’ list?

If you are on the voters’ list and your information is correct and up to date, you will receive a Voter Information Letter in the mail near the end of September. This will contain:

  • Your elector details, i.e.: name, address, ward and school board support designation;
  • Information and instructions on how to cast your electronic ballot or paper ballot during the voting period;
  • A list of voting dates and locations; and
  • Identification requirements for voting.

If you do not receive a Voter Information Letter, you may not be on the voters’ list or your address information may not be up to date if you have moved since the last election.

If I haven’t registered before Election Day and I’m not on the Voters’ List, can I still vote?

Yes, you can still vote in the 2022 Municipal and School Board Election if you have not registered or are not on the Voters’ List prior to Election Day, but you will need your Voter Information Letter before you can cast your ballot.

If you do not receive your Voter Information Letter by the first week of October, you can visit any Voter Registration Centre, located at Citizen Service Centres and Libraries, during their regular business hours up until the close of voting on Election Day (Monday, October 24, 2022). You can also visit any in-person paper ballot voting location on Election Day or on an advance voting day to make sure that you are on the voters’ list and your information is up to date.

If appropriate, a new or replacement Voter Information letter will be issued to you.

What is a Voter Information Letter?

Voters should begin to receive their Voter Information Letters during the third and fourth weeks of September. Voter Information Letters contain important information for all voters whether they wish to vote online or in person. The information on your Voter Information Letter will determine the candidates you will be voting for in this election.

In order to vote online, you will need to have your Voter Information Letter. Voter Information Letters include the credentials you will need to access the online voting system, as well as the link to the website. For voters who wish to cast a paper ballot, Voter Information Letters will also contain information about voting dates and times, as well as a list of Advance and Election Day paper ballot voting locations.
