Voter Information

 

Who is running in my ward?

 
 

The City of Ottawa will have new ward boundaries for the 2022 Municipal Elections and 2022-2026 Term of Council. There will be one new ward and new names for six existing wards.

From Monday, May 2, 2022, to Monday, October 24, 2022, voters can use their address to verify their ward number, ward name, and the candidates running for Mayor, City Councillor and School Board Trustee, by using the Who is running in my ward?(link is external) tool.

This tool will be updated regularly between Monday, May 2, 2022 to Friday, August 19, 2022 as candidates submit their nomination forms to the Elections Office.

For more information on the new ward boundaries, please visit the Ottawa Ward Boundary Review 2020, page.

Information for voters

 
 

The next regular municipal election to elect a Mayor, City Councillors, and School Board Trustees will be held on Monday, October 24, 2022. Eligible electors will have the opportunity to cast a ballot for the following offices:

  • Mayor - one elected at large
  • City Councillor – one elected per ward
  • School Board Trustee - one elected per zone
    • Ottawa-Carleton District School Board
    • Ottawa Catholic School Board
    • Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario
    • Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est

For more information, we recommend consulting the Ministry of Municipal Affairs' 2022 Voters’ Guide – Ontario municipal council and school board elections(link is external). This guide was created to provide voters with general information in plain language concerning the rules and constraints of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 and other legislation and regulations.

Who can vote?

 
 

A person is entitled to vote in a municipal election if they are a qualified elector. That means, on voting day, you must be:

  • a resident of the City of Ottawa, or an owner or tenant of land in the City, or the spouse of such an owner or tenant;
  • a Canadian citizen;
  • at least 18 years old; and
  • not prohibited from voting by law.

If you are not a resident of the City of Ottawa, to vote for a School Board Trustee, you must be:

  • an owner or tenant of residential property in the area of jurisdiction of the school board, who does not support any other board.
 

Who cannot vote?

 
 

The following persons cannot vote in a municipal election:

  • serving a sentence of imprisonment in a penal or correctional institution.
  • a corporation.
  • acting as executor or trustee or in another representative capacity, except as a voting proxy.
  • convicted of a corrupt practice described in section 90(3) of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996(link is external).

Voting for students

An eligible elector may have residences in two local municipalities at the same time if:

  • the person lives in one of the local municipalities in order to attend an educational institution, but not with the intention of changing their permanent lodging place; and
  • the person’s permanent lodging place is in the other local municipality.

In this scenario, the elector is eligible to vote in both their "home" municipality and in the municipality where they currently live while attending school.

Voters with no address or permanent lodging place

Eligible electors with no address or permanent lodging place can participate in voting opportunities by determining their residence by:

  • The place to which the person most frequently returned to sleep or eat during the five weeks preceding the determination is their residence.
  • If the person returns with equal frequency to one place to sleep and to another to eat, the place to which they return to sleep is their residence.
  • Multiple returns to the same place during a single day, whether to eat or to sleep, shall be considered one return.
  • A person’s declaration regarding the places to which they returned to eat or sleep during a given time period is conclusive, in the absence of evidence to the contrary.
 

Voters' List

 
 

The Voters’ List is a list of eligible electors in the City of Ottawa. During non-election years the City of Ottawa does not maintain a Voters’ List.

During an election cycle, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for preparing the preliminary list of electors for each municipality and school board in Ontario. It is MPAC’s Municipal Property Assessment database of both property owners and tenants that is used to prepare this preliminary list, which aids in the preparation of the final Voters’ List for Voting Day.

Once a municipality has prepared the Voters’ List, the revision period begins, and electors may add, amend or remove their information.

For the 2022 Municipal Elections in City of Ottawa, the online Revision Period will begin on Thursday, September 1, 2022 and end on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm. During this period, electors can conveniently verify and amend their information online by using the Am I on the voters’ list? tool. After this period, electors can download and bring the completed Application to Add or Amend My Information on the Voters’ List form to their voting place. The form will also be available at all voting places on voting days.

In the meantime, electors are encouraged to use MPAC’s online tool, voterlookup.ca, to confirm whether they are on the preliminary list of electors for the upcoming municipal elections. This tool can be used to make updates to the electors information where incorrectly recorded, to add a name to the enumeration and/or to change an electors school support for electoral purposes.

Voter notification letters

Voter notification letters will be mailed to all eligible electors that appear on the Voters’ List the week of Monday, August 29, 2022.

The voter notification letter includes information on when and where an elector can vote for the 2022 Municipal Elections.

If an elector amends their information during the Revision Period (from Thursday, September 1 to Friday, September 16, 2022), they will receive a revised voter notification letter.

Eligible electors do not need to receive a voter notification letter in order to vote.

Am I on the voters’ list?

The Voters’ List identifies people who are eligible to vote in the 2022 Municipal Elections by name, address, school support, and residency status.

From Thursday, September 1, 2022, until Monday, October 24, 2022, you can verify your information by:

  • using the Am I on the voters’ list? search tool;
  • calling 3-1-1; or
  • calling the Elections Office at 613-580-2660.

The Voters’ List will also be available for public viewing from Thursday, September 1, 2022, until Monday, October 24, 2022, at the Elections Office by appointment only and any Client Service Centres.

Adding your name or amending your information on the Voters’ List

For the 2022 Municipal Elections in City of Ottawa, the online Revision Period will begin on Thursday, September 1, 2022 and end on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm. During this period, electors can conveniently verify and amend their information online by using the Am I on the voters’ list? tool.

After this period, electors can download and bring the completed Application to Add or Amend My Information on the Voters’ List form to their voting place. The form will also be available at all voting places on voting days.

The deadline to make an application to add or amend your information on the Voters’ List is Monday, October 24, 2022.

Removing a Name from the Voters’ List

Beginning Thursday, September 1, 2022, if an elector wishes to remove their name from the Voters’ List, or if a person’s name appears on the Voters’ List and another elector has reason to believe that the person’s name should no longer be there (e.g. the person is deceased or has moved), the elector may take the following steps to have the name removed:

  • Complete an Application to Remove a Name from the Voters’ List; and
  • Mail or deliver it to the Elections Office along with the supporting information as to why the person’s name should be removed from the Voters’ List.

The final day to remove someone’s name from the Voters’ List is Monday, October 24, 2022.

Voting places are listed on voter notification letters and can be found using the Where do I vote? tool from Thursday, September 1, 2022, to Monday, October 24, 2022.

Special Advance Vote Days

Special Advance Vote Days will take place from Saturday, September 24 to Tuesday, September 27, 2022, and voting places will be open from 10 am to 8 pm.

During this voting event, voting places will offer “anywhere voting” which allows electors to attend any of the nine voting place locations across the City of Ottawa, regardless of their address, to cast their ballot. Anywhere voting uses an electronic Voters’ List and election workers print ballots on demand.

Advance Vote Days

Advance Vote Days will take place on Friday, October 7 and Friday, October 14, 2022 and voting places will be open from 10 am to 8 pm. On these voting days, electors will have the opportunity to vote in their wards at their assigned voting location.

Voting Day

Voting Day is Monday, October 24, 2022. On this day, electors will have the opportunity to vote in their wards at their assigned voting place from 10 am to 8 pm, with the exception of long-term care centres and retirement homes which may have reduced hours.

Voting by special mail-in ballot

 
 

Electors can apply to vote by special mail-in ballot should they be unable to make it to a voting place during voting opportunities or feel uncomfortable about voting in person. This alternative voting method is available to all eligible electors upon request.

Any eligible elector can request a special mail-in ballot from the Elections Office between Thursday, September 1, 2022 and Friday, September 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm. To request a special mail-in ballot:

  • Use the Application for special mail-in ballot tool, or
  • Complete an Application for Special Mail-in Ballot form and submit by mail or email.

An elector’s name must appear on or be added to the Voters’ List in order to apply and receive a special mail-in ballot. Electors can verify if their name appears on the Voters’ List by using the Am I on the voters’ list? tool from Thursday, September 1, 2022, and end on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm.

Once an application is reviewed and accepted, the Elections Office will send a Special Ballot Voter Kit, which will include instructions on how to vote, a voter declaration form, a ballot, a ballot secrecy envelope, and a prepaid return envelope to the applicant by mail following the close of the application period. Electors can expect to receive their special mail-in ballot kit during the week of Monday, September 26, 2022, which provides electors nearly one month to fill out and return their special mail-in ballot.

Completed special ballots must be received at the Elections Office or Client Service Centers by 4:30 pm on Monday, October 24, 2022, in order to be counted. Any special ballots received after 4:30 pm will not be counted.

Voting by proxy

 
 

Electors can vote by proxy should they be unable to make it to a voting place during voting opportunities or feel uncomfortable about voting in person.

A proxy is someone that can go to the voting place and cast a ballot on someone else’s behalf. A proxy must be an eligible elector and can still cast their own ballot.

A proxy can vote for only one other person unless they are representing members of their own family. A proxy appointed for a person who is not a family member can act as the proxy for this one person only. A person cannot be appointed as a proxy for a non-family member and a family member at the same time.

How to appoint a proxy

Electors can appoint a proxy from Thursday, September 1, 2022, until Monday, October 24, 2022.

To appoint a proxy, the elector and the person you want to appoint must fill out two copies of the Appointment for Voting Proxy - Form 3(link is external). The individual that has been appointed must take the completed forms to the Elections Office, or any Client Service Centre during regular business hours, and have it certified by City staff.

Information required by proxy at voting place

Once the completed forms have been certified, the individual that has been appointed as a proxy is required to provide the following:

All voting proxies must be appointed by 4:30 pm on Voting Day, Monday, October 24, 2022.

Appointment for Voting Proxy - Form 3(link is external) can be filed at the Elections Office or any Client Service Centre during regular business hours.

  • On September 24 and 25, 2022 (Advance Voting Days), Client Service Centres will be open from noon to 5 pm allowing voting proxy applications to be presented.
  • On September 26 and 27, October 7, and October 14, 2022 (Advance Voting Days), Client Service Centres will be open from 8:30 am to 5 pm allowing voting proxy applications to be presented.
 

Accessibility at voting places

 
 

The Elections Office is committed to providing an accessible voting process. On all voting days the Elections Office ensures several accessibility tools are available to electors including:

  • large print ballots
  • magnifying sheets
  • braille listing of candidates
  • braille ballot template
  • access to a cell phone with Elections call centre staff on standby. Electors may use this feature to call elections staff to have their ballot read to them over the phone.

Accessible vote tabulators

All special advance voting places, advance voting places and voting places in retirement residences and long-term care facilities will offer an Accessible Vote Tabulator (AVT). The AVT allows electors with disabilities to vote privately and independently through the use of its accessible features, which include:

  • Bilingual visual support through a 19-inch screen with zoom, high contrast features
  • A braille keypad
  • Left-right paddles (colour-coded left and right paddles)
  • A sip-puff device
  • Bilingual audio through headphones

Curbside voting

If you are physically unable to go inside the voting place, you can request to have your ballot brought to your vehicle, outside of the building or to another area within the voting place. A friend or support person will be required to go inside the voting place to let the election officials know that you require curbside voting.

For additional information about curbside voting, please contact the Elections Office.

Accessibility Plan

As required under the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 (the “MEA”), the City Clerk will prepare a plan regarding the identification, removal and prevention of barriers that affect electors and candidates with disabilities and will make the plan available to the public before Voting Day in a regular election.

The Elections Office will consult designated members of the Accessibility Advisory Committee as the plan is drafted. The plan will be made available to the public on ottawa.ca upon completion.

After Voting Day, as required under the MEA, the City Clerk will make public a report on the identification, removal and prevention of barriers that may affect electors and candidates with disabilities. This report will be completed and made public on ottawa.ca on or before Monday, January 23, 2023.

With the new 24-ward structure set to take effect for the 2022 Municipal Elections, Council approved renaming six existing wards to reflect geographical areas and community names.
