HELPFUL TIPS!

If you choose to Vote by Mail - you cannot vote by Internet or Phone.  Once we receive your mail in ballot - your PIN will be deactivated.   Please ensure you give the post office plenty of time to deliver your ballot to us.   If your ballot is not received by 8:00 pm on Election Night, we cannot count it.   

If you are Voting by Internet: The voting website address is included in your Voting Information Letter. Only use this official voting website address by typing it directly, and exactly,  into the address bar, NOT the search engine bar (i.e., google, yahoo, bing) and do not include “http” at the start.   If you are using Internet Explorer, after you enter the address, press “enter” or “return” on your keyboard.   DO NOT use the magnifying glass.

If you are Voting by Telephone:  Using the speaker phone option (if you are in a private location) to make it easier to listen to the instructions in their entirety.  Make your selections and only press the # (number sign - hashtag) key when you are finished making all of your selections for each race.  Please make sure you wait to ensure that the system says “Goodbye” which confirms that you have successfully voted.

Note:  If you get interrupted while you are Voting by Internet and lose your connection - you can go back later to finish OR you can use the telephone to finish.   If you get interrupted while you are Voting by Telephone and have to hang up - you can go back later to finish OR you can use the internet to finish.    Electronic voting is interchangeable BUT you cannot change your vote once it is cast!  

You can determine if your Mail-in Ballot was received by going to the voting website and entering your PIN and Date of Birth prior to the election close at 8:00 pm.

If you attempt to vote both by mail and electronically (internet or telephone), only the ballot that arrives first will be counted.

If you have any questions, give us a call 705 387 3947 or drop us a line at elections@magnetawan.com
