The next municipal election in Toronto is Monday, October 27, 2014, and every elector that is on the voters' list will receive a voter information card in the mail early October. This card will tell you where and when you vote during advance vote, and on election day.
New in 2014 is the online tool MyVote that will allow voters to find when and where they vote. MyVote not only gives every eligible voter in the City the opportunity to find out where and when they can vote, but also provides other key information such as being on the voters' list and the candidates who are running in their ward.
Access to the key information will be released at different times throughout 2014:
- Starting January 2, 2014
Voters can input their address and find out which candidates are running in their ward
- Starting September 2, 2014
Voters can use this tool to find out if they are on the voters' list as well as where and when to vote and accessibility information about their voting place
- Starting October 1, 2014
Voters can also find a sample of their ballot
The Voter Information Card
The voter information card that every elector on the voters' list receives informs the elector where and when to vote. Listed on the card are the election day and advance vote dates and times. Voting locations are specific to each elector's voting ward and subdivision. Receiving and bringing this information card will speed up the voting process for all electors when they go to vote.
