Make sure you are registered to vote

August 11, 2022   ·   0 Comments

The next Ontario Municipal and School Board elections are coming up on October 24, 2022.

We all play a role in ensuring a fair electoral system and it is the responsibility of every elector to make sure their information is up-to-date and accurately reflected for electoral purposes.

To vote in the municipal election, you must be a resident, owner or tenant of property in Ontario, a Canadian citizen, and 18 years of age or older on election day.

You can ensure you are on the voters list by logging on to website: www.voterlookup.ca.

On this site you can confirm or update your electoral information, add an elector name to an address, and change school support for the purpose of voting in a school board election.

The site is run by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, responsible for identifying all potential municipal, school board, and District Social Services Administration Board electors.

MPAC provides this information to election clerks in support of local election events.

VoterLookup.ca is also used to collect the names of all occupants in a household. This information is collected and provide to municipalities and school boards to assist with planning purposes.

MPAC only collects and uses personal information that is absolutely necessary to delivery legally authorized programs and services. On occasion, MPAC may also use this information to conduct surveys, obtain feedback and enhance the delivery of programs and services.

It is important to know that VoterLookup.ca is not used for provincial of federal election purposes.

You can follow the links from VoterLookup.ca, to confirm, update, or add information to the provincial voter’s list.
