How to vote

On this page

You can vote on advance polling days or on election day. A list of advance polling days will be provided on our website in September 2022.

Vote in person

If you don’t receive your voter notification card and are eligible, you can still vote.

You must bring your identification with you when you go to your voting location.

  1. When you arrive at the voting location, you’ll be greeted by election staff.
  2. Present your identification and voter notification card. Staff will check if you’re eligible to vote. If you meet the requirements, you’ll be given a ballot.
  3. You will go behind a voting screen to complete your ballot. To vote for your chosen candidate, fill in the bubble beside their name, and place your ballot into the tabulator.

Vote by proxy

If you are unable to vote either in the advance poll or on election day, you can select someone to vote on your behalf. This person must also be eligible to vote within the City of Mississauga.

To have someone vote for you, you and the person who is voting for you must complete an Appointment for Voting Proxy Form. This can be done starting September 1, 2022.

After you complete the form:

  • The person who will be voting for you will bring the completed form and their identification to the Clerk’s Office
  • The Clerk or the Clerk’s designate will review the forms and if the requirements are met the forms will be certified
  • The person who will be voting for you will bring the certified form and their identification to the voting location when they cast your vote

Accessible voting

The City of Mississauga is committed to providing accessible voting to everyone.

The City’s elections accessibility plan will be available in September 2022 with more information.
