North Bay, ON – Sept. 28, 2022 – More than 40,000 voter information letters have been mailed to registered voters in North Bay.
The letters include important information for electors about where and when to vote in the Oct. 24th Municipal Election, as well as a personal identification number (PIN) required to vote online.
The letters were mailed Wednesday and should be received as of Oct. 11th, just ahead of the online and advanced voting periods.
Eligible North Bay electors who are planning to vote online and do not receive a letter in the mail by Oct. 11th, or receive a letter that includes incorrect personal information, should contact the City Clerk's Office at 705-474-0400 to be added to the voters’ list and to receive a PIN.
A voter information letter cannot be used as voter identification at an in-person poll. All that’s required to vote in-person is an acceptable identification showing a name and qualifying North Bay address. It is recommended, however, that those planning to vote in-person and who do not receive a voter information letter, or receive a letter that includes incorrect personal information, also contact the Clerk’s Office to be added to the voters’ list in advance.
