The Voter's List
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (http://www.mpac.on.ca/) (MPAC) maintains the Voter's List for all Ontario municipalities. MPAC works to maintain the Voters' List and makes revisions based on information they receive about owner or occupant information for properties located within Southwest Middlesex.
Before each municipal election MPAC provides us with a preliminary Voter's List based on information obtained through its enumeration list. The list is available to the voters at the municipal office where voters can ensure that their information is complete and accurate.
Anyone on the preliminary Voters' List will receive a Voter Information Notice mailed by Southwest Middlesex well in advance of the election.
Adding or Removing Occupants from Your Property is your Responsibility and can be Easily Completed and is Most Effective if Completed At the Earliest Opportunity
If you answer yes to any of the following questions you may need to update occupancy status and/or school board support information for your property:
- Did you move from a home you owned to a rental property?
- Have your adult children permanently left home?
- Do you have new tenants?
Notifying MPAC of occupancy changes will help to make our 2018 Voter's List more accurate which will save you time and make voting a smooth and easy process.
Voter LookUp is a program provided by MPAC and is anticipated to be available to the public in early 2018. This is a simple way to add or remove property occupants and to update school board support information.
