Guelph Election 2018

Guelph’s 2018 municipal election is taking place on October 22, 2018. Specific information about voting locations, advance polls, and the voters list will be made available on Guelph.ca in early 2018.

Internet Voting

Internet voting was used in the 2014 municipal election during the advance voting period. Internet voting will not be used as a method of voting for the 2018 election. Voters who previously used internet voting to cast their ballot are encouraged to vote in person during the advance voting period or on Election Day.

Ranked Ballots

A report on the option of a ranked ballot election was presented at the September 6 Committee of the Whole meeting. At that time City Council decided not to pursue the use of ranked balloting for the 2018 municipal election.

More information on the September 6 meeting can be found on the Committee of the Whole webpage.

More information on ranked ballot elections and the recent changes to the Municipal Elections Act can be found on the Ministry of Municipal Affairs webpage.

Candidates

The nomination period for individuals to register as election candidates has changed as a result of amendments to the Municipal Elections Act. The nomination period for the 2018 election begins May 1 and ends July 27, 2018. Individuals wishing to register as candidates in the 2018 municipal election must ensure their nomination papers are filed within this window. More information and relevant forms and documents will be made available on Guelph.ca in early 2018.

Dates and times for candidate information sessions will be released in early 2018.

Third Party Advertisers

The Municipal Elections Act now includes a framework to regulate third party advertising. The framework will come into effect on April 1, 2018, so that the rules will be in place for the 2018 municipal election.

More information on third party advertisers can be found on the Ministry of Municipal Affairs webpage.

More information, including forms and documents, will be made available on Guelph.ca in early 2018.
