As a Canadian citizen, voting is your right and responsibility. Your community is shaped by the outcome of an election.
The individuals who are elected will make many important decisions including how tax dollars are spent in your community.
If you meet all of the following conditions, you are eligible to vote in the 2022 Mississauga municipal election:
Bring your identification (ID) when you go to vote.
If your name is on the Voters' List, you will need to show one piece of identification that has your name and address on it in order to receive a ballot.
Your Voter Notification Card cannot be used as a piece of ID.
Acceptable Identification includes an Ontario driver's license, an Ontario Photo Card, a cancelled personalized cheque, an insurance policy or statement or any other document included on the acceptable documents for voter identification list.
The Voters' List is a list of people who are eligible to vote in the 2022 Municipal Election.
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) provides a list of electors to the City of Mississauga. The City of Mississauga uses this list to prepare the Voters' List for voting days. If your name is on the Voters' List, you will receive a Voter Notification Letter in the mail with the voting days and selected voting locations. Make sure you bring this letter with you to vote as it will speed up the time it takes to vote.
The Voters' Guide from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs gives information about voting in municipal and school board elections. A new Voters' Guide will be available in 2022.
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 be a qualified elector within the City of Mississauga.
A Voter Notification Letter contains your information, important voting information and a statement of elector eligibility. If you are already on the Voters' List, you will receive a Voter Notification Letter in the mail prior to the municipal election. The Letter is not a form of identification.
As nominations are received, the Who is Running page will be updated.
