Voting Proxy

Appointing a voting proxy

If you will be unable to personally cast your ballot, you may appoint someone to act on your behalf who is also an eligible voter in the municipality. This person is called your voting proxy. To appoint a voting proxy, you and the person you want to vote for you must fill out two (2) copies of the Appointment for Voting Proxy Form (Form 3). You must know who you want to appoint as your proxy when you fill out and sign the forms and that he/she is eligible to vote in the same municipal election. 

The earliest that a proxy can be appointed is once candidates have been certified after the close of nominations on July 27th, 2018.

Being a voting proxy

If someone has appointed you as their voting proxy you must take the completed forms to the municipal clerk to be certified. Once the forms have been certified, you may cast a vote on behalf of the person who appointed you by presenting the certifed form at the poll.

If you are appointed as a proxy for one family member you may also be appointed as the proxy for additional family members. Family member refers to a spouse, sibling, parent, child, grandparent or grandchild. There is no limit to the number of times you may be appointed, but it must only be for family members. You cannot be appointed as a proxy for a non-family member and a family member at the same time.

If you are appointed as the proxy for a person who is not a family member, you can act as the proxy for this one (1) person only. You cannot be a proxy for anyone else.
