How to Vote

How do I vote?

Here are five quick steps to help make voting easier:

Check if you are eligible to vote

Are you:

  • a Canadian citizen
  • at least 18 years old
  • live in Shelburne (own or rent), or
  • don’t live in Shelburne, but you or your spouse own or rent property in Shelburne.

Are you on the voters list?

Being on the voters list saves you time when you vote.

You also receive a voter notification letter in the mail which tells you what ward you live in, who you can vote for, and your in-person voting locations.

Confirm if you are on the registered voters list. You can be added to the voters list up to July 22, 2022.

If you’re not on the list, or you need to update your information, you can make the change online or call Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) at 1-866-296-6722 or TTY: 1-877-889-6722.

After Sept. 1, 2022, revisions to the list of electors can be made by filing an application at town Hall during the revision period or at the voting place on voting day.

Pick your preferred voting option and date

There are three ways to vote:

  • online, using Internet voting, from October 11 to 24, 2022
  • in person at advance polls on October 15 and 22, 2022, from 10am to 3pm at Shelburne Town Hall
  • in person on election day, October 24, 2022, from 8:30am to 8:00pm at Shelburne Town Hall

Choose what time of day you want to vote

Voting hours vary by voting location. More information about voting locations and hours will be available closer to the election.

Supporting your accessibility requirements

We want to make voting as easy-as-possible for you. More information about voting locations will be available closer to the election. 

What do I need to bring when I vote?

There are two things to bring with you when you vote in person:

  1. your voter notification card – it will save you time when you check in.
  2. one piece of ID that has your name and address on it. Photo ID not required. Accepted ID includes:

What should I expect if I vote in person?

When you arrive at your voting location, you will be greeted by Town of Shelburne election staff.

You will be asked to present your ID and voter notification card. Staff will check if you are eligible to vote. If you meet the requirements, you will be given a ballot.

Then, you will be given a electronic device to complete your ballot.

To vote for your chosen candidate, fill in the bubble beside their name and then cast your ballot in the tabulator.
