Mon, 01 Oct 2018

Municipal election voting day is October 22, 2018

Avoid voting day line ups and take advantage of the town’s advance voting opportunities which run from October 6 to 16, 2018. Eligible voters can vote at any one of the advance voting locations regardless of where you live in town. Find advance voting locations, dates and times on your voter card or on the Oakville Election website.

To vote in the Oakville municipal election you must be:

  • a Canadian citizen;
  • at least 18 years old on voting day;
  • a resident, or owner or tenant of land in Oakville, or the spouse of such owner or tenant; and
  • not prohibited from voting by law

When you go to vote, bring one acceptable piece of identification that has your name and qualifying address on it in order to receive a ballot. Eligible voters are also encouraged to bring along their voter card to avoid delays.

Not sure if you’re on the voters’ list? It’s not too late to check. Use our voter look up tool and easily add yourself to the list if needed using our online form.

If you haven’t received your voter card yet, contact the town’s Clerk’s department by email at elections@oakville.ca.

New ward boundaries

Your ward may have changed! Oakville’s new seven-ward boundary system will be used to conduct the municipal election and will officially be in place on December 1, 2018. To accommodate the new Ward 7, which captures neighbourhoods north of Dundas Street, adjustments have been made to all existing ward boundaries except Ward 3. Confirm the ward you live in using our interactive map or check your voter card.


All locations are accessible and election officials have been trained to provide accessible customer service. Accessible voting equipment will be available at Town Hall during advance voting and on voting day, and will be open to all voters regardless of where they live in town.

Voting Day – October 22, 2018

On voting day, you can vote at any location in the ward you live in. Voting locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Locations will be listed on your voter card and online.
