Who can vote?

A person is entitled to vote in a municipal election if they are a qualified elector. That means, on voting day, you must be:

  • a resident of the Township of South Stormont, or an owner or tenant of land, or the spouse of such an owner or tenant;
  • a Canadian citizen;
  • at least 18 years old; and
  • not prohibited from voting by law.

Voters’ List

The Voters’ List is a list of eligible electors in the Township of South Stormont.

During an election cycle, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for preparing the preliminary list of electors for each Municipality and School Board in Ontario. It is MPAC’s Municipal Property Assessment database of both property owners and tenants that is used to prepare this preliminary list, which aids in the preparation of the final Voters’ List for Voting Day. Once Municipalities have the preliminary list of electors, the revision period begins and electors may add their name or make changes directly at the Voter Help Centre.

To confirm your information is accurately recorded for the upcoming elections, log on to voterlookup.ca using your property address or assessment roll number and your full name and date of birth. Updating this information will help to ensure that municipal Voters’ Lists are accurate and up-to-date in preparation for municipal and school board elections occurring this October. If there are persons on the Voters List for your household who no longer live at your address, it is important to Contact the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) as soon as possible to report these changes. 

Find out ahead of time if you are eligible to vote. Visit voterlookup.ca or call 1-866-296-6722.
