2018 Municipal Election Accessibility Plan

On November 22, 2016 Council passed a resolution which will allow for internet/telephone voting for the 2018 Municipal Election. The Village participated in a joint RFP for internet/telephone voting service providers with other Lambton County municipalities: Lambton Shores, Dawn Euphemia, Oil Springs, Petrolia, Plympton-Wyoming, Warwick and Sarnia.

Eligible electors can vote using a computer, telephone, cell phone, iPad, laptop, or tablet, that will deliver an accessible, environmentally-friendly, and convenient method of voting. Internet voting provides voters with flexibility and convenience, reduces wait times at voting locations, delivers quick and accurate results, and allows students and vacationers to vote from anywhere.

A voting place will be made available to provide ease of voting and a familiar experience.

Please continue to check this website and other Village information channels for updates on internet/telephone voting information and upcoming educations sessions in 2018.
