Look for your Voter Notification Cards in the mail

Voter Notification Cards are being mailed to registered voters and are expected to be delivered the last week of September.

Voter Notification Cards are required to vote online because they provide a unique Voter ID and PIN as part on the security process. The cards also list the assigned voting locations for in-person voting based on the voter’s address. To vote in-person, voters should bring their Voter Notification Cards, along with ID that includes their name and address to ensure streamlined service at the poll.

Voters who don’t receive their Voter Notification Card by October 3, 2022 are encouraged to contact election staff at 705-742-7777 and dial 7, or use the Voter Registration Portal at www.peterborough.ca/voters.
