Voter's List

If your name is on the list, you will receive a Voter Notification Card in the mail with a letter outlining your date to vote, including advanced polls, and polling station. Information from both the Federal and Provincial elections is different from the Municipal Voter's List.

IMPORTANT: If you have moved since the last municipal election in 2018, you will need to update your address with MPAC. Visit mpac.ca under "Making Changes and Updates."  You can also verify your information on voterlookup.ca. This secure database can be used by Ontario residents to enter their name and the names of other household members to confirm or update your information.

The City of Timmins will begin sending out all Voter Notification Cards in September 2022. Information will be posted prior to election day for those eligible voters who did not receive a Voter Notification Card.
