  • Registering for Internet voting

    Elector registration must be done through the Internet. All information required to register to vote by Internet is contained on your Voter Notification Card, which was mailed out in September.

    Registration begins on Saturday, October 13 and continues until noon on Monday, October 22. Register at https://www.intvoting.com/PECounty2018

    Your Voter Notification Card includes your unique Elector Identification Number (EIN) that will allow you to access the online Elector Registration Program. Once registered, you will receive an e-mail with your Personal Identification Number (PIN). 

    You must be on the voters list order to receive your Voter Notification Card. If you have not received your Voter Notification Card, please call the Election Office at 613.476.2148 ext. 1086. 

  • Internet voting procedures

    1. Voting by Internet commences on Saturday, October 13 and continues until 8 pm on Monday, October 22.

    2. You will be asked to make a declaration that you are entitled to vote in the 2018 municipal election and that you are a Canadian citizen. You will then be able to access your ballot to vote for the candidates for Mayor and your Ward Councillor and School Board Trustees.

    3. You will be limited to only one vote through the use of your unique Elector Identification Number.

    4. Once you have made your selections, the website will identify your choices and provide you with the option of changing or confirming your votes.

    5. If you wish to do so, you may abstain from voting for any of the offices (Mayor, Ward Councillor or School Board Trustee).

    6. Once your Elector Identification Number and Personal Identification Number (PIN) has been used, it cannot be used again and further access shall not be granted.

    7. The system will provide an acknowledgement that your ballot has been successfully cast. Once your ballot has been confirmed as successfully cast, you are deemed to have voted and your ballot cannot be reclaimed or re-voted.

  • Disruption of Internet voting

    If at any time during the voting process there is a disruption in the Internet voting service, you may contact the call centre help line for technical support. Technical support staff does not have access to PIN information in the system. If you use the call centre line you will need to answer a security question for verification purposes. Support staff can only reset a PIN if the status of the online voting system reads 'not voted'.
