Qualifying to Vote:
You have the right to vote in municipal elections if:
- you are a Canadian citizen; and
- you are 18 years of age or older; and
- you reside in or own or are a tenant of land in The Blue Mountains or you are the spouse of such a person.
These are the same qualifications to be a candidate for election.
By voting in the municipal election, you are selecting representatives who will determine the priorities and direction of our Town. The Blue Mountains utilizes the Vote by Mail process for municipal elections. A Vote by Mail ballot kit is mailed to all eligible voters shown on the Voter’s List. Voters have the option of returning the Ballot Return Envelope containing the sealed Ballot Secrecy Envelope and Voter’s Qualification Form to the Town Office by Canada Post or directly to the Town Office up to the final Voting Day on Monday, October 27, 2014, until 8:00 p.m. There are no voting places in a Vote by Mail election. To ensure accuracy of the Voter’s List, eligible voters may check the Voter’s List beginning in September and if qualified, will be added to the Voter’s List up to the close of voting on October 27, 2014.
