South Huron Election 2022

Who can vote?

If you are a resident, owner or tenant of property in Ontario, a Canadian citizen and 18 years of age or older, on the day of the Election you can vote in Ontario’s municipal and school board elections.  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.

Are you on the Voters' List? 

The voters’ list is prepared in several steps:

  • A preliminary list is created by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) based on data it keeps on home ownership and tenancy.
  • The preliminary list is sent to the municipal clerk after a by-election has been called or in advance of a regular election which occurs every 4 years. The clerk can correct any errors on the list, and the corrected list then becomes the voters’ list.
  • If you are not on the voters’ list, or if your information is incorrect (for example, you have moved and may be listed at a former address), you may apply to have your name added or your information corrected. This may be done until the close of voting on voting day in a regular election or by-election. You may have your name added to the voters’ list at the voting place. You may be asked to show identification to establish that you are eligible to vote.  
  • See the list of acceptable documents for voter identification. For more information about getting on the voters’ list, you should contact your municipal clerk.

 To be eligible to vote in the Municipal Election, your name must be on the voters' list.  

Starting the 1st day of September, 2022 to the close of voting on October, 24 2022 (during  normal hours and on the 24th day of October until 8:00 p.m.), an elector may make an application to add, delete or amend their information on the Voters’ List. A Revision and Help Centre will be located at the municipal office (322 Main Street South, Exeter Ontario) to make additions, deletions and       corrections to the Voters List and to  provide assistance and clarification on the election process.

Staff will be visiting communities in the municipality in late September as well as during the  voting period to answer questions from residents about the  voters list, and to offer voting tutorials. Locations and dates will be advertised once set.

Anyone requiring assistance at home, please contact the Municipal Office for an appointment. 519-235-0310 or vote@southhuron.ca
