Make your voice and opinion heard. As a Canadian Citizen, voting is both a right and responsibility. You can make a meaningful impact on your community by voting. The individuals elected will make decisions that shape the community, including how your tax dollars are spent.
Who can Vote?
You are eligible to vote in the 2018 Mississauga municipal election, if you are:
- a Canadian citizen
- at least 18 years old
- a resident in the City of Mississauga or a non-resident of Mississauga and you or your spouse own or rent property in the City
- not otherwise prohibited under the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 or by law
You can only vote once in the City of Mississauga municipal election and you must vote in the Ward that you are registered in as a voter on Election Day.
How to vote?
According to the Mississauga Votes site, here's how to vote.
Confirm the Ward you live in and where to vote. You can choose to vote on the Advanced Poll days or on Election Day.
Bring your ID when you vote. If your name is on the Voters' List, you must show one piece of identification that has your name and address on it in order to receive a ballot. (Your Voter Notification Card cannot be used as a piece of ID.)
Acceptable Identification includes an Ontario driver's license, an Ontario Photo Card, a cancelled personalized cheque, an insurance policy or statement or any other document included on the acceptable documents for voter identification list.
If you are unable to vote either in the Advance Poll or on Election Day, you can select someone to vote on your behalf, but they must be a qualified elector within the City of Mississauga.
To select someone and provide them with voting proxy, both you and the person you wish to select must fill out an Appointment of Voting Proxy form. Instructions on how to do this are included on the Appointment of Voting Proxy form. Appointment of Voting Proxy forms will be available after 4 p.m. on July 30, 2018.
The City of Mississauga is committed to providing accessible voting to those in need. Learn more about accessible voting by reading the Accessibility Plan
