Proxy Voting

If you will be unable to get to a voting place to cast your ballot on October 22, 2018, or on any of the Advance Vote days, you may wish to appoint a proxy. A proxy is someone that can go to the voting place and cast a ballot on your behalf. This person must be an eligible elector and should be someone you trust to mark the ballot the way you have instructed them to. You and the person you want to appoint must complete an Appointment for Voting Proxy Form - Form 3 (English Form / French Form) and return it to the Clerks' office to be sworn.

On Voting Day, October 22, electors will vote at their assigned voting location. Voters will receive a Voter Information Card indicating where to vote. Alternatively, electors can find their voting location at saultstemarie.ca/election under 'Voter Services'.
