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. By logging into voterlookup.ca, eligible electors can:

  • confirm or update their electoral information
  • add an elector name to an address and
  • change school support for electoral purposes

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.

 

The VoterLookup site is owned and managed by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC), responsible for identifying all potential municipal, school board and District Social Services Administration Board electors. To be eligible to vote in the Municipal Election, your name must be on the voters' list.  

Voting Methods for the 2022 Municipal Election

South Huron will be using Internet/telephone voting methods for our 2022 Municipal Election. These alternative voting methods will also be used for the advanced polling period. Proxy voting provisions will not be applicable at the 2022 Municipal Election.

For any questions regarding the 2022 Municipal Election please contact the office at 519-235-0310.

Who can be a candidate?

  • Candidate must be a resident of the municipality or a non-resident owner or tenant of land in the municipality or the spouse of such non-resident owner or tenant;
  • a Canadian citizen and at least 18 years old;
  • not legally prohibited from voting;  and not disqualified by any legislation from holding municipal office.
  • You will need 25 signatures on your nomination form and must pay a fee of $100 ($200 for mayor).

When you think about candidates for federal or provincial elections, you usually think about the political party that each candidate represents. In municipal elections in Ontario, candidates are not elected to represent a political party. 

 2022 Municipal Council and School Board Election Guides are available for review.    

Accessibility

The Municipal Elections Act places responsibility on the Clerk to have regard to the needs of the electors and candidates with disabilities. Accessible customer service standards must be followed when conducting municipal elections. South Huron's election accessibility plan ensures that candidates and electors with disabilities have full and equal access to all election information and services, including the voting kiosk at the municipal office.
