Voter Information

VOTER ELIGIBILITY

There are two categories of voters who are eligible: Resident Voters and Non-Resident Voters.

RESIDENT VOTERS

A person who is a resident of The City of Winnipeg is eligible to vote if they are:

  • a Canadian Citizen
  • 18 years old or older on Election Day, October 27, 2010
  • a resident of the City of Winnipeg since April 27, 2010

The following criteria apply to the residency of a person:

  • is a resident of the place where they have their ordinary residence, and to which they intend to return when away from it
  • may be a resident of only one place at a time
  • does not change residence until they have a new residence

Notes:

  1. A person who leaves the City of Winnipeg for temporary reasons is still considered a resident voter. For example, a student attending university or college outside the City, but who intends to return home after the term ends, is considered a resident voter.
  2. A person who has resided within the City of Winnipeg for six months prior to Election Day, but has moved from one address to another, is still qualified to vote, but must do so at the voting place where they reside on Election Day.
  3. A person must be a resident in the School Division since April 27, 2010 to be eligible to vote for School Trustee.


NON-RESIDENT VOTERS (applies only to individuals living outside the City of Winnipeg):

A person who is not a resident of The City of Winnipeg is eligible to vote if they are:

  • a Canadian Citizen
  • 18 years old or older on Election Day, October 27, 2010
  • a registered owner of land in the City of Winnipeg as listed in The City of Winnipeg Assessment Roll since April 27, 2010

If three or more non-resident persons are registered owners of a parcel of land,

  • no more than two of them are eligible to vote
  • in order to be included on the Voters List, each of those two persons must file with the Senior Election Official the written consent of the number of persons who, together with the person to be included on the Voters List, are a majority of the registered owners of the land

Notes:

  1. Despite the possibility of multiple property ownership, a person who is eligible to vote can only vote once and the name can only be entered once on the Voters List.
  2. The City’s Election Office has assigned where a non-resident voter appears on the Voters List. For further information, non-resident voters may contact 311.
