Whether you choose to vote online or in person, your VIL contains important information, including:

– Your voter data (name, address, community and school board designation).

– List of personal voting dates, times and locations.

– Access data and link to access the online voting system.

– Identification required for voting.

What if I don’t receive a VIL in the mail? If you are eligible to vote but have not received a VIL by October 11th, you may not be on the voters list or your mailing address may have been incorrect. You will also not receive an email if you updated your voter information after September 12th.

You can still vote, but you must first get a VIL. You have two options:

– Visit a voter registration center by the close of voting on Election Day to obtain a new or replacement VIL.

– Visit any in-person polling location on Election Day (Oct. 24) or any early Election Day (Oct. 15 or 22) to review your voter roll information and make updates.

Greater Sudbury Citizens Service Centers and Libraries are designated as Voter Registration Centers during their regular opening hours until 24th October. For a list of locations and hours of operation see www.sudburylibraries.ca.

What if I get more than one VIL? In some cases, a voter may receive more than one VIL. In this case, keep the letter that most closely matches your identification. Then do one of the following for the duplicate:

– Print “Duplicate – Return to Sender” on it and drop it in any Canada Post mailbox.

– Take it with you when you go to the polls and give it to an election official with a note that it is a duplicate.

– Take it to any voter registration center during regular business hours until the end of voting on Election Day and tell them it is a duplicate.

It is a violation of the Local Elections Act to vote more than once in an election and can result in fines or imprisonment.
