Make sure you’re on the Voters List!
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for collecting the information of residents in Ontario (name, date of birth, citizenship and school support) in order to create a preliminary list of electors for Municipal and School Board Elections. Municipalities will use the preliminary list of electors to prepare their voters list for the 2022 Municipal and School Board Elections.
The information in this section provides a general introduction to the upcoming Municipal and School Board Elections. This information is not meant to replace provincial legislation. It provides general information about the rules outlined in the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, the Municipal Act, 2001 and other legislation and regulations.
No person who proposes to be a candidate may solicit or accept contributions for election purposes, or incur campaign expenses, until that person has filed a Nomination form with the Township Clerk.
Nomination papers may be filed at the Office of the Clerk at the Brooke-Alvinston Municipal Office. Nomination forms and full particulars of the nomination process can be obtained from the Office of the Clerk in which nomination papers must be filed, or telephone inquiries may be made to 519-898- 2173
