Apartment Buildings and Condominiums

The Municipal Elections Act, 1996 was changed in 2016 so that landlords and condominium corporations are not allowed to prohibit tenants or owners from displaying election signs on their premise. This includes the ability to display election signs in common areas of the building even if the space is being used as a voting place. As a result, the City of Woodstock will no longer be using apartment buildings as voting places in order to ensure the neutrality of the voting place. Instead, an additional week of advanced voting from 12 pm - 8 pm has been added at City Hall and a poll will now be held on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. This advanced voting will be accessible to all members of the public rather than just the tenants of the apartment buildings.
