Niagara voters unable to cast their ballot on Election Day (Oct. 24, 2022), or attend an advance poll, have another options such as voting by mail (available only in participating municipalities) or assigning a voting proxy.
A voting proxy is someone who will cast a ballot on another’s behalf in their absence. The person acting as a proxy must also be an eligible elector.
A voting proxy can be appointed to multiple people if they are relatives or only one person if they are non-relatives. Relatives include spouses or sibling(s), parent(s), child(ren), or grandparent(s) and grandchild(ren).
Visit Niagara Votes, or contact your local municipal Clerk’s Office or website to learn more about alternate voting options and voting requirements.
