Key Dates

Who May Vote?

Any person who on Voting Day meets the following qualifications is eligible to vote:

  • Is a Canadian Citizen;
  • Is at least 18 years old on Voting Day;
  • Resides in the municipality or is the owner, tenant, or spouse of the owner or tenant of land; 
  • Any person not prohibited, by law, from voting.

Voters should ensure that their names and relevant information are correctly shown on the Voters’ List.  Not sure if you’re on the Voters’ List?  Attend the Municipal Office or call 613-756-2747 and speak with the Returning Officer or designate.


How to vote

Vote By Mail:

Vote by Mail will be the voting method used for the 2018 Municipal Election.

Vote by Mail is an alternative approach to voting. Instead of having traditional poll locations for voting, a voter kit is mailed to each eligible elector on the voters’ list.  Voters can return the completed kits either through the mail or they can be hand-delivered to Ballot Return Station.


Why are we using Vote by Mail?

  • Ease and convenience for voters—you can vote in the comfort of your home and on your own time.
  • It is an accessible way to vote for people with mobility issues.
  • You can vote even if you are away on Election Day.
  • Many Ontario municipalities successfully conducted their municipal elections in 2014 using Vote by Mail, including the Township of Madawaska Valley. 

Is Vote by Mail secure?

Vote by Mail is a double envelope system that protects the confidentiality of the voter.  Just like your other bills and payments, your completed ballots (in return envelopes) are processed through the Canada Post mail delivery network. Election staff use the signed voter declarations within the return envelopes to strike voters off the list—it is against the law to vote more than once for any elected office within the same municipality or school board.
