Voter Information 

As information for voters becomes available, it will be posted here. For more information, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing provides a comprehensive document for voters called the 2018 Voters' Guide for Ontario Municipal and School Board Elections. This document can be found at the bottom of the page.

Who Can Vote?

You are entitled to vote in the municipal election if, on voting day, you:

  • Reside in the local municipality or are the owner or tenant of land here, or the spouse of an owner or tenant;
  • Are a Canadian citizen;
  • Are at least 18 years old; and
  • Are not prohibited from voting by law.

You are prohibited from voting if you are:

  • Serving a sentence of imprisonment in a penal or correctional institution;
  • A corporation;
  • Acting as executor or trustee or in any other representative capacity, except as a voting proxy; and
  • Convicted of the corrupt practice described in subsection 90 (3) of the Municipal Elections Act 1996, as amended, if voting day in the current election is less than five years after voting day in the election in respect of which he or she was convicted.

All eligible electors will receive a Voter Notification Card in the mail prior to Election Day indicating your specific voting location.

Voting Day

Poll Hours: 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Appointment Of Voting Proxy

If for any reason you will be unable to cast your ballot in person on Election Day or at an advance poll, proxy voting allows you to appoint another person to vote on your behalf. A voting proxy is someone who is an eligible voter in the City of Brantford and who you trust to vote in accordance with your wishes. Further information on proxy voting will be posted as soon as it is available.
