With Brampton’s municipal election less than a month away, the City wants voters to know how and when they can cast their ballots on election day or through early voting.

Brampton residents who are eligible to vote in the Oct. 24 municipal and school board election should be receiving their Voter Notices in the mail in the next few days.

Voters should keep an eye out for an envelope containing election information and Voter Notices for each voter at an address.

If you don’t receive a Voter Notice in the mail, then there is a chance your name may not be on the Voters’ List.

You can check to see if you are on the list or update your information by visiting the City’s website. Updates and online registrations are open until Oct. 15 and 5:00 p.m.

On election day, voters are asked to take their notice and a piece of identification with them when they go to cast their vote.

Here are some helpful tips and commonly asked questions ahead of voting day

Can I vote without a Voter Notice?

Yes, just remember to take a piece of identification showing your name and qualifying Brampton address to the voting location.

If you are not on the Voters’ List as  of election day, you can be added to the list while at your voting location.

Is there advance voting?

Advance Voting will take place on Oct. 7, 8, 9, and again on Oct. 14 and 15. To find the Advance Voting location closest to you, visit the City’s website.

When and where do I vote?

Voting Day is on Monday, Oct. 24.

On election day you can cast your vote at any location within your ward. For a list of voting locations by ward click here.

What if I can’t make it to a voting location?

If you are an eligible Brampton voter who can’t make it on Voting Day or any of the Advance Voting dates, you may appoint another eligible Brampton voter to vote on your behalf.

Any person whose name is on the Voters’ List or who has been added to the Voters’ List may vote by proxy. Vist the City’s website for more information about proxy voting.

Eligible voters who are homebound due to illness, injury or disability may apply to vote using the Home Voting service on Oct. 11, 12 and 13.

Limited appointments will be available to those who meet the eligibility requirements. More information about the home voting service is available online.
