Voters in South Dundas should have received a copy of a pamphlet in the mail this week that explains how they vote in the upcoming municipal election.
In this election South Dundas voters will have the opportunity to vote by phone, internet or paper ballot.
This pamphlet is not the Voter Information Letter, that will be send out the second week in October.
Electors in South Dundas will personally and individually receive by first-class mail, a Voter Information Letter containing the following information;
1. The toll free telephone number to call and the website to visit to vote;
2. Your confidential and Personalized Identification Number (Voting PIN);
3. A list of the candidates nominated for each office and instructions on how to vote;
4. The telephone number of the Voter Help Center.
As an added security feature, voters will be required to add your date of birth before voting. Anyone unsure if their full date of birth is on the voter’s list, may have to come into the Voter Help Centre (Municipal office) to fill out a form and provide photo identification.
Voting will commence on October 22, 2014 at 9 a.m. and conclude on October 27, 2014 at 8 p.m.
Voting access by telephone and internet will be available on a continuous six 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 six 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. For further information call them at 613-543-2673.
