Can I vote by proxy?

Eligible electors who are unable to vote may appoint another eligible elector of the same municipality to vote on their behalf at Advance Polls or Election Day. The first day to accept Appointment for Voting Proxy forms is July 27th after 2:00pm. Appointment for Voting Proxy forms will be accepted until October 22nd. 

The elector making the appointment must fill out 2 copies of the form with original signatures - no scanned copies will be accepted. The elector that is being appointed as the proxy will then bring both forms to Legislative Services, 3rd Floor, Waterloo City Centre (City Hall), to be commissioned.

Forms are available at the Office of the City Clerk or from the Government of Ontario website 

A person cannot:

  • appoint more than one voting proxy; or
  • act as a voting proxy for more than one other person unless the appointed proxy and the other person are spouses or siblings of each other, parent and child, or grandparent and grandchild.
