A Voter Information Letter (VIL) will be mailed to every Town of Tecumseh elector. It will provide you with instructions on how to vote using either the internet or telephone and provide you with a Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you do not receive your VIL by October 14, 2022, contact the Clerk's Office at 519-735-2743 or visit the Tecumseh Town Hall.

Why Internet and Telephone Voting?

There are many advantages to internet and telephone voting and they include but are not limited to the following:

Accuracy: Internet and telephone voting uses electronic ballots effectively reducing counting errors from manual tabulations.

Automatic Tabulation: 100% of the results will be available shortly after 8:00 pm on October 24, once all voters have completed their voting (if they logged in before 8:00 pm).

Convenience: There are many non-resident electors that do not live in Tecumseh year round and they should have equal opportunity to vote just as those who live here. Every elector will be able to vote from a location of their convenience. Also, voters will no longer need to find a postal box, or rely on Canada Post to ensure that their ballot is returned back to Tecumseh Town Hall.

Emergency Preparedness: Voting by internet or telephone does not require any large gatherings at polling stations, and allows voters to vote from the comfort and safety of their home if future emergency stay-at-home orders are issued.

Efficiency: reduces printing, return postage fees, staff time for vote counting, and the amount of paper utilized.

Accessibility: Internet and telephone voting is a convenient option for electors allowing them to use their own devices and access their ballots anytime during the voting period, and from anywhere with Internet or telephone access.
