Ensure you are on the voters' list  

The Voters' List is a list of persons who are eligible to vote (electors) in the 2022 Municipal and School Board Elections. The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) prepares a Preliminary List of Electors (PLE) for municipalities from its property assessment information and enumerations. The PLE is used to prepare the Voters' List. You must be on the Voters' List to receive a Voter Information Letter containing vital information about voting using the internet or telephone.  To confirm or update your information, visit the VoterLookup website or call MPAC at 1-866-296-6722.  Eligible voters can also call or visit Tecumseh Town Hall to ensure they are on the Voters' List, that their information is correct, and that their date of birth is registered.

Eligible electors who do not appear on the Voters' List are required to fill out an Application to Amend the Voters' List-Form EL15. Applications to Amend the Voters' List must be submitted in person to the Clerk, or designate, at Tecumseh Town Hall.

Photo identification will also be required.  

Student vote 

Student Vote is a parallel election program that provides students under the voting age with the opportunity to experience the voting process and practice the habits of active and engaged citizenship.

The project for the local elections is being funded by the Ministry of Education of Ontario and Government of Canada, and is supported by the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario, as well as education stakeholders and school boards throughout the province. Program registration is free and open to all elementary and secondary schools.
