The Importance of Accurate Catholic Voters Lists
The voice and vote of Catholic ratepayers is important to the future of our Catholic schools. In order to vote for Catholic trustees, your CDSB ratepayers must be registered as separate school supporters.
Please share the Voting Information for Catholic Ratepayers flyer with your community.
To make the process of verifying support easier for voters, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) has created voterlookup.ca.
Through voterlookup.ca, all Ontario residents can check to ensure that their information is accurately reflected on MPAC’s Preliminary List of Electors for the municipal and school board elections.
- Visit voterlookup.ca to confirm information and follow the easy steps published on the website.
- Make corrections as nessary. Only separate school supporters can vote for Catholic trustees.
