- a Canadian citizen
- 18 years of age on election day
- ordinarily a resident of Marystown 30 days prior to election day

However, if you have recently…

Advance Poll

An advance poll will be held on September 23, 2017, at the Municipal Office with the poll opening at 8:00 a.m. and closing at 8:00 p.m.



Voting By Proxy

If a voter is unable to vote on either Election Day or at the Advance Poll, he/she may vote by proxy.


Impeditive voters can appoint a proxy voter to vote on their behalf. To appoint a proxy voter, an impeditive voter must be on the voters list and must complete a proxy application form. Proxy applications can only be given to the impeditive voter or the designated proxy. The application must be returned to the Returning Officer by 4:00 p.m. the day before Election Day as applications will not be accepted after that deadline.

Once an impeditive voter has appointed a proxy voter and the proxy certificate has been issued, the impeditive voter CANNOT be present on Election Day to vote in person unless the proxy vote is cancelled. The proxy voter must give the proxy certificate to the Deputy Returning Officer at the polling division where the impeditive voter is entitled to vote in order to vote on behalf of the impeditive voter.

Only one proxy certificate will be issued for any one impeditive voter and a person may act as a proxy voter only once in any municipal election. A proxy vote can only be used on Election Day.


Incapacitated Voters

All of our Polling Stations are accessible. If you are incapacitated and unable to vote on your own or need special voting arrangements due to your personal situation, please make this known to the Returning Officer or Deputy Returning Officer who will provide assistance through an election official or through the person accompanying you.


For further information, please call 279-1661.
