Municipal Election

The 2014 municipal election will be held on October 27.

Provincial legislation pertaining to municipal elections and municipal candidate information is available online for the 2014 fall election.

Business Owners

Many people own a business in Town but do not live here. Those individuals are entitled to vote if the property ownership or lease is in their personal name.

If the property ownership or lease is in the name of the company, the individual is not entitled to vote because only people vote, not corporations.

Non-resident owners or tenants of commercially and industrially assessed lands are not eligible to vote for school board positions.  They will receive a ballot without a school board race.
