Municipal Voting In Rideau-Rockcliffe Continues Until 8 PM This Evening

Voters in Rideau-Rockcliffe byelection head to the polls Monday to choose from 17 candidates. Monday’s election is limited to residents of Rideau-Rockcliffe – so if you own or rent property in the ward but actually live elsewhere in the city, you can’t cast a ballot.

You can figure out if you’re on the voter’s list by consulting the City of Ottawa’s search tool: https://elections.ottawa.ca/UI/FindName/FindName

If you’re not on the list, don’t fret: you can still apply to be added at the ballot station.

Otherwise, the usual rules apply: voters must be Canadian citizens, at least 18 years old, and not prohibited from voting for legal reasons. Monday’s voting gets underway at 10 a.m. and lasts until 8 p.m.

Voters must also bring one piece of identification containing their name and address. The list of acceptable voting identification is long, but some common examples include:

  • An Ontario driver’s licence.
  • An Ontario health card.
  • A mortgage statement, lease or rental agreement.
  • A utility bill for hydro, water, gas, telephone or cable television.
  • A credit card or bank account statement.
