Residents are responsible for ensuring that their completed ballots and documents are returned to City Hall and received by the Chief Election Officer by Saturday, Oct. 15, before the close of voting at 8 p.m. It is not sufficient to have a post-marked envelope dated before this deadline.

Ballots received after the deadline will not be counted. Residents are encouraged to start this process soon if they plan to receive and submit the applications by mail and then receive and submit their votes by mail as well.
