For in-person voting on election day and advance voting days, voters must go to one of their assigned voting locations depending on the ward where they are registered to vote.

The city says 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 of the security process.

Voters who don’t receive their card by Oct. 3 are encouraged to contact election staff at 705-742-7777 and dial 7, or use the Voter Registration Portal.
