Vote by mail

Vote by mail will be available as a remote alternative to in-person voting this election.

An online registration form is available below to request a vote by mail kit. The deadline to apply is Friday, October 14 at 4:00 p.m.

Voters will be asked to confirm that they are on the voters’ list first before they can request a vote by mail kit. An acceptable identification/document must be uploaded as part of the registration process in order for a request to be approved.



Once voters are approved, they will receive their kit in the mail. Completed kits must be received by the City Clerk’s Office by October 21, 2022 at 4:00pm.

Vote by mail kits will include:

  • a ballot
  • a declaration form that must be signed in order for your vote to count
  • a ballot secrecy envelope
  • a yellow return envelope with pre-paid postage

Completed vote by mail kits can be returned by mailing with pre-paid postage through Canada Post, dropped off in-person at ServiceGuelph during business hours, or deposited in the secure drop box in front of City Hall outside of business hours. Kits cannot be returned at advanced or election day voting locations or at any other City facility.
