How to Vote in Toronto's Muncipal Election
25/10/2003

Toronto's municipal election is Monday, November 10. That's about two weeks from now.

If you haven't received your voter notification card by now, you might not be on the voters' list. You can vote without being on the voters' list, but it will be a lot more convenient if you get signed up today.

First, are you eligible to vote? If you are a Canadian citizen, over the age of 18, living in Toronto, then you're probably eligble. You can also vote if you or your partner own or rent property in the City.

If you're eligible, and want to add yourself to the voter's list. Here's what to do:

  1. Download the application to amend the voters' list
  2. Fill it out
  3. Either mail it to Toronto Election Services (3 Dohme Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M4B 1Y7), or bring it to the City Clerk's Office at City Hall, or at any of the pre-amalgamation former city halls. (You can also have someone else take it to the clerk for you.)

What better time to do this than this weekend? You're not that busy, and there's still enough time for Canada Post to do its job.

Now, if you don't get yourself on the list, you can still vote. Just show up at the proper polling station on election day. They'll sign you up on the spot. To find out where to vote, click here.

No matter whether or not you have a voter notification card, you need to bring personal identification (driver's licence, a utility or credit card bill, City tax bill, lease, etc.) that shows your name and your address in the City of Toronto.
