Voting

The Municipal Act states that general municipal elections must be held every four years on the fourth Wednesday in October. 2022 is an election year and Wednesday, October 26th, 2022 is election day for the R.M. of St. Andrews.

The RM has seven elected positions: one mayor and six councillors. There is one councillor in each ward.  The mayor represents the entire RM.

You can find answers to most of your election FAQs at the province’s municipal election website.

You are eligible to vote in the RM of St. Andrews if the following applies:

  • You must be a Canadian citizen
  • You must be at least 18 years of age on election day
  • You must be a resident of the municipality OR a registered owner of a property for at least six months before election day (since April 26, 2022)

When do I vote?

Between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm on Wednesday, October 26, 2022.

*Identification may be required before being allowed to vote.

Do I need identification to vote?

A voter may be asked to produce identification if there are questions about the voter’s eligibility. All voters should bring ID with them to the voting place, or when requesting a sealed envelope ballot in person. Even voters who request a sealed envelope ballot in writing must submit photocopies of their ID when applying to vote.

Acceptable identification includes an official document issued by the federal, provincial or municipal government that contains the voter’s name, address and photograph or at least two documents that provide evidence satisfactory to the election official.

What if my name does not appear on the voters list and I have owned property for more than 6 months?

If your name is not on the voters list, you can still register to vote upon arrival at the voting station on election day. However, you will be asked to provide photo identification so ensure you bring acceptable identification with you. Acceptable identification includes an official document issued by the federal, provincial or municipal government that contains the voter's name, civic address and photograph or at least two documents that provide evidence satisfactory to the election official.
