What is a Resident Elector?

    • A person is a resident of the municipality where the person lives. 
    • A person may not be a resident in more than one municipality at a time.
    • A person does not cease to be a resident by leaving for temporary purposes (i.e., school, vacation). 
    • A resident does not have to own property. A resident may be a renter. 

    What is a Non-Resident Elector?

    • A person is a non-resident property elector if they do not live in the municipality, but instead own property in the municipality.  
    • Non-resident property electors will need to provide a copy of their land title to prove ownership and identify how many people are on title. 
    • If the property is owned by more than one person, only one of the owners may vote on behalf of the property as a non-property elector.  If the property is owned by more than one person, the majority of owners have to decide which of them will be voting on behalf of the property and fill out the appropriate consent form.

    If a person owns more than one property can they vote once for each property?

    No person may vote more than one time in any election. 

    Can I take someone into the voting booth to help me?

    • Yes, if you need assistance, an election official may assist you.  If you are caring for someone (e.g., a child or elderly relative) at the time you cast your ballot, the presiding election official may allow you to have that person in the booth with you. 
    • Anyone providing assistance to another elector is required to sign a solemn declaration before providing any assistance.
