What To Bring to the Polls
Residents should bring their Voter's Card and are required to bring one piece of identification to the polls.

If your information is wrong on your Voter's Card
If your information is wrong when you receive your voters card, you are encouraged to attend an Advance Poll and inform the election staff that your card is incorrect. This way they can correct the information on your card, and you can vote at that same time. NOTE: If you have moved since the 2014 Municipal Election, and your voters card is incorrect - please also try to attend an Advance Poll, in the case that you have moved into a new Ward within the Town and you need a new card.

OR When you arrive at your polling station on Election Day, ask to speak with the Revision Clerk, and inform him or her that the information on your Voter's Card is incorrect. Be sure to bring the incorrect Voter's Card and one form of identification with you.
 

If you don't have a Voter's Card
Yes, you can still vote, even without a Voter's Card. Ask to speak with the Revision Clerk and inform him or her that you don't have a Voter's Card but would still like to vote. NOTE: Please ensure that you provide valid Identification with your current address on it in order to receive the proper ballot.


Remember: The fastest way to vote is to make sure you're on the voters list and arrive at the polling station with your voter notification card and one piece of identification.
