INFORMATION FOR VOTERS

        

     

 

 

 

 

VOTER eligibility:

A person is entitled to be an elector at an election held in a local municipality (unless prohibited by the Municipal Elections Act or any other Act) if, on Voting Day (Monday October 22, 2018), he or she:

  • Is a Canadian citizen, AND

  • Is at least 18 years old, AND

  • Resides in the Township of Rideau Lakes, or is the owner or tenant of land in the Township of Rideau Lakes, or the spouse of such a person, AND

  • Is not prohibited from voting under any law

resident elector:

 

A resident elector is a person who lives in the Township of Rideau Lakes, and is eligible to vote in that municipality's election. A person is only allowed to have one residence.

 

non-resident elector:

 

If a person lives in one municipality, but owns or rents property in another municipality, then they are a non-resident elector and able to vote in that municipality's election.

 

spouse of non-resident elector:

 

If a person lives in one municipality, and qualifies as a spouse of a non-resident elector, then they are able to vote in that municipality's election.

 

students:

 

A person may have residences in two local municipalities at the same time if the person lives in one of the local municipalities in order to attend an education institution but not with the intention of changing his or her permanent lodging place, and the person's permanent lodging place is in the other local municipality.

 

Therefore, students can vote in the municipality where they attend school and they can also vote in the municipality where they live.

 

voter identification:

 

All electors at the voting place must show proof of name and qualifying address before receiving a PIN (Personal Identification Number) to vote. If the elector does not have identification with them they will be required to complete Form 9, a Statutory Declaration stating that they are the elector showing on the Voter's List.

 

Voters are not required to show photo identification, only identification showing name and qualifying address.

 

Since the adoption of Ontario Regulation 304/13 requires only one list and one item of acceptable identification. That ONE item must be an original, certificate or notarial copy and shall show the person's name and qualifying address, view the list.
