WHAT’S NEW

SAFE VOTING

A safe Election is our priority. It’s important to remember that there are multiple opportunities to vote, which will help mitigate physical distancing concerns at polling stations on Election Day, November 9. For all available Advance Poll dates, see the Important Dates section on the right-hand side of this page. When you vote in-person, the following will be in place at all polling stations:

  • Physical distancing. Voters are asked to stay two metres (six feet) apart.
  • The City strongly recommends wearing a mask at the polls.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at all polls.
  • Surfaces in the polls will be disinfected throughout the day.
  • Voters who feel unwell on Election day should stay home. Avoid not being able to vote by exploring other voting options such as advance voting or mail-in ballots.

MAIL-IN BALLOTS

The Election Bylaw has been amended to make it easier for municipal voters to vote in the upcoming municipal election without having to attend in person at a polling station.

ONLINE VOTER REGISTRATION FORM

Voters will have the option to print off an online Voter Registration Form and bring the completed Form with them to their polling station to reduce wait times.
