Internet Voting will begin on Monday, October 1st at 10:00 a.m. and will conclude on Sunday, October 21st at midnight.

YOUR Vote is YOUR Voice!

1.  Register online after receipt of your Voter Notification Letter,

2.  Login, use your PIN and VOTE!!!!!

A detailed description of the Internet Voting Process is provided below.

Using the municipality's Voter's List, Voter Notification Letters will be sent to voters prior to the Municipal Election, providing instructions on how voters can register for an Internet Ballot.  Voters who are interested in voting online log onto a secure registration server, and enter in required personal information as well as required information from their Voter Notification Letter.  This information is automatically verified by the system against the municipality's Voter's List to ensure eligibility. 

Once the voter has received their PIN Number, they are ready to retrieve, mark, and cast their Internet Ballot.  Each voter uses their PIN Number and other personal data to login to the server and view their ballot.  Once a PIN Number has been used to cast a ballot, it is flagged by the system and cannot be re-used to obtain another ballot, to ensure only one electronic ballot is cast per voter. The use of multiple credentials entered by the voter ensures that fraudulent access cannot be obtained by using hacking techniques.

The Internet Ballot has the same look and feel as a regular paper ballot, but includes some additional features such as Help commands, optional visual zoom on candidates' names and accessibility features providing universal access based upon the requirements of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

After completing their ballot, the voter is prompted to review their choices.  Once the voter has reviewed their ballot choices and made any desired changes, the voter will press the Submit button in order to cast the ballot.  Options alert the voter of under votes, over votes, and non-voted races, providing the voter an opportunity to correct the ballot or submit the ballot as marked.

After pressing the Submit button, the ballot information is:

  • Hidden to guarantee privacy;
  • Encrypted to protect the information; and
  • Hash coded to ensure the ballot is not altered before reaching the election server.

After receiving a confirmation from the server that the ballot has been successfully received, the electronic ballot program is deactivated for that voter, and therefore cannot be used by them again.  An electronic audit trail of the process is stored, for any future reference.  This audit trail is extremely valuable for the purposes of post-election auditing, particularly if the system comes under question in a potential recount situation.

Once polls close, Election Officials will initiate the vote count and reporting process to report totals from all voting methods, consolidating under one results reporting system.

Internet Vote Voting Education: 2-Step Process.
