Why Vote?

Voting is a fundamental right of our democracy. When you vote, you are selecting representatives who approve the laws and policies that determine how our community functions.

Municipal government is involved in many aspects of our daily lives – maintaining roads and sidewalks, providing clean water, clearing the snow, providing recreation opportunities and protecting our residents.

A person is entitled to be a voter at the municipal elections if on Voting Day (October 27, 2014) they are:

  • A Canadian citizen
  • At least 18 years of age or older on Voting Day
  • Reside in the Township of Guelph/Eramosa or an owner or tenant of land or the spouse of such owner or tenant
  • Not otherwise prohibited from voting
