Voter Do’s and Don'ts

Do's

It is your democratic right to vote for the candidates of your choice. Contact the Election  Office by calling 705-728-8683 (VOTE) or emailing Be.Counted@barrie.ca if you:

  • are asked to share your voting PIN via email, text, social media, or in person.
  • have any concerns about something

Contact the Election Office immediately to get a new voting PIN if you lose yours (the old PIN will be deactivated).

Don'ts

Never share your voting PIN – it’s unique to you. Candidates, law enforcement, city staff, or anyone else should never ask for it.

It’s illegal to vote using a voting PIN that is not yours.

You can’t vote more than once in a municipality, no matter how many voting days there are or how many properties you own or rent.

Do not open a Voter Information Letter that’s not addressed to you – it’s illegal to take, open or tamper with mail that’s addressed to another person. If you receive a Voter Information Letter for someone who doesn’t live at your address anymore, don’t open or forward it. Instead, mark the envelope ‘Return to Sender’ and drop it in the mail, so it will be returned to the City's Election Office.

Never post a photo or selfie with your ballot on social media or elsewhere – it’s illegal.

Never use a candidate’s mobile device/tablet to vote or share proof of whom you voted for with anyone.

A candidate cannot assist a voter in the voting process. If you require assistance please call 705-728-8683 (VOTE), email Be.Counted@barrie.ca, visit a Voting Assistance Centre, or visit a Vote Bus.
