Voting methods

Voting in Innisfil's 2022 municipal election will be by online and telephone voting. Voting online is a fast, convenient, and secure way to vote which has been previously used successfully by many municipalities, including Innisfil.

Voter information package

Eligible voters will receive a Voter Information Package with their personal Voter ID or Voting PIN. Do not share this information with anyone, including any candidates or town staff. Along with this information, other steps are required to validate voter identity when voting online. Voters will also be required to take an oath confirming their eligibility, similar to in-person voting. It is illegal to vote when you are not eligible.

Packages will be sent via Canada Post in September to people on the Voters List. It is a Criminal Code offence to tamper with mail, which includes opening a Voter Information Package other than your own. If your household receives a package for a former resident or family member who is no longer an eligible voter, do not open or forward it. Mark the envelope “Return to Sender – Not at this Address” and drop it in a mailbox.

One person, one vote

It is illegal to vote more than once in the same municipality. The internet voting system used by the Town of Innisfil can flag irregular voting occurrences for further investigation. We will pursue individuals who commit voter fraud, which can carry a fine of up to $25,000 and imprisonment up to 6 months.
