This Municipal Election will be conducted electronically!

After a successful pilot project during the Ward 3 By-election, this election will be conducted by an internet and telephone voting system.  (But don't worry, in-person is also available for those who'd like a little extra assistance!)

Voter Eligibility


In order to vote, all four of the following criteria must apply on the day of the election:

  • You must be 18 years of age or older

  • You must be a Canadian citizen

  • You must be either a resident of Barrie, or a property owner or tenant within Barrie, or be the spouse of an owner or tenant in Barrie

  • You must be on the Voters' List

You may only cast one vote in Barrie, no matter how many voting days there are or how many properties you own or rent.

Non-resident voters are only eligible to vote for Mayor and Ward Councillor (not School Board Trustee)

What ID is required to register?

  • Electors must provide an original, or a certified or notarial copy of a document listed at the City's Voter Identification - 2022, and shows the person's name and qualifying address
