Municipal Elections will be held on October 27, 2014 for the election of Municipal Councils and School Board Trustees. Persons interested in submitting their names as candidates, may now complete the necessary nomination forms and submit them to the Municipal Office by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, September 12, 2014.
The Municipality of South Dundas has adopted the alternate voting method of "Vote by Telephone, Internet or Paper Composite Ballot". VOTING WILL ONLY BE DONE BY TELEPHONE, INTERNET OR PAPER COMPOSITE BALLOT.
Should a municipal election occur as a result of having a greater number of candidates than required to fill the office(s) available, each eligible and registered elector on the List of Electors will personally and individually receive, by first-class mail, a "Voter Information Letter" containing the following information:
- The toll free telephone number to call and the website to visit to vote;
- Your confidential and Personalized Identification Number (Voting PIN);
- A list of the candidates nominated for each office and instructions on how to vote;
- The telephone number of the Voter Help Center.
As an added security feature, you will be required to add your date of birth before voting. If you are unsure that your full date of birth is on the voter’s list, you may contact the Voter Help Centre (Municipal Office) to have it added prior to voting. After September 22, 2014, you will be required to come into the Voter Help Centre to fill out a form and provide photo identification.
Voting will commence on October 22, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. and conclude on October 27, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. Voting access by telephone and internet will be available on a continuous 6 day, 24-hour basis during this voting period. The “vote by telephone” method requires use of a touch-tone telephone. The "vote by internet" method requires use of a computer with internet access.
As in the past no proxies are permitted with these alternate voting methods. Any individual, during the 6 day voting period, may request assistance at the Voter Help Centre (Municipal Office).
In addition, all County Libraries have established internet access centers for the use of the public at locations in the various communities in the United Counties of S.D. & G.
To accommodate all electors, the Municipal Office will be open extra hours. Please contact the Municipal Office for the hours or further information.
