Voter Information

Town Council has approved the use of internet voting for the 2018 Municipal/School Board Trustee Election. Electors will be able to vote in advance of Voting Day electronically. For those electors who prefer to vote by paper ballot, the municipality will offer that option also. On Voting Day the results will be forwarded to the Town Hall and displayed in the Auditorium of the Town Hall.

  • a Canadian citizen; and
  • at least 18 years of age; and
  • a resident of the Town of Carleton Place; or
  • an owner or tenant of land in the Town of Carleton Place, or is the spouse of such owner or tenant; or
  • a non-resident of Carleton Place but you or your spouse own or rent property in the Town; and  
  • are not otherwise prohibited from voting under any law.

You cannot vote on voting day if you are:

  • a person serving a sentence of imprisonment in a penal or correctional institution; or
