If you have not received your Voter Notification Card, or if the information is incorrect, please visit City Hall, 66 Charlotte Street, Port Colborne, call 905-835-2900 ext. 109 or email election@portcolborne.ca. Office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A Voters’ Notification Card indicates that you are on the Voters’ List, tells you when and where to vote, and best of all, makes voting quicker! Bring your Voter Notification Card and identification with you on Voting Day - October 22 - or to one of the Advanced Voting dates – October 10, 13 or 17.

Acceptable forms of identification are listed on the City’s website at http://www.mah.gov.on.ca. You may still vote if you do not have a Voter Notification Card.
