2022 municipal election

With only five days left until Toronto’s 2022 municipal election on Monday, October 24, Toronto Elections is reminding eligible voters about important deadlines for mail-in voting and third party advertiser registration.

Mail-in voting
Voters who were approved to vote by mail this election must return their completed mail-in voting packages by noon this Friday, October 21. Toronto Elections must receive the package before the deadline.

Two return options were provided to those voting by mail:
1.      Completed mail-in voting packages can be returned using the provided pre-paid postage. Deposit the package in any Canada Post mailbox in time for it to arrive by October 21.
2.      Place completed mail-in voting packages into any of the secure yellow Toronto Elections mail-in voting drop boxes, available in each of Toronto’s 25 electoral wards.

With the approaching deadline, voters are encouraged to use the drop box option to ensure Toronto Elections receives their package before Friday’s noon deadline. Voters can use any drop box, regardless of the ward where they live. A map and list of drop box locations are available on the Toronto Elections Mail-in Voting Drop Box Locations webpage:

Voters can track the status of their package using the confirmation code generated after completing their online application. To track packages at each stage from submitted, approved, mailed and received, voters can use Toronto’s Elections MyVote:

More information about voting by mail, including instructions to complete the package, is available on the Toronto Elections Mail-In Voting webpage:

Third party advertiser registration
Individuals, corporations and trade unions planning to spend money to promote, support or oppose a candidate for Toronto’s 2022 municipal election must register as a third party advertiser before the deadline of 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21.

A Notice of Registration to become a third party advertiser can only be filed in person at the Toronto Elections Office City Hall location. Registrations can be filed Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., until October 21. The Notice of Registration form is available on the City’s website:

The City Clerk must certify the registration before a third party advertiser can spend money on their campaign, accept contributions or begin advertising. Registered third party advertisers must identify themselves on advertisements and comply with requirements under the Municipal Elections Act, 1996.
