WHO CAN VOTE IN A MUNICIPAL ELECTION?
This blog post explores who can vote in the Grey Highlands elections. The answer might surprise you.
Are you ready to vote?
Canadian citizen? Check.
Over 18? Check.
Okay, you have passed the first gate. You can progress to the next step.
Live in Grey Highlands? This means you own, rent, share unpaid accommodations or live in the municipality but do not have a fixed address. This the most common type of eligibility. You can only be a resident elector in one municipality.
Own or rent property in a municipality (but it’s not your primary residence). You can be a non-resident elector in any other municipality (or municipalities) where you own or rent property.
Have a spouse who owns or rents property in Grey Highlands.
Live away from home while you attend school, then you are eligible to vote in both your “home” municipality and in the municipality where you currently live while attending school.
DID YOU KNOW? Neither you nor your spouse qualify as a non-resident elector if you do not personally own or rent the property in the municipality. For example, if the property is owned by your business or your cottage is owned by a trust, you would not qualify as a non-resident elector.
