Internet Voting approved as an option for electors voting in advance of Burlington's 2014 municipal election day
On April 14, City Council approved the use of internet voting for voters who would like to vote in advance of October 27, 2014. Internet voting means that voters can complete an online voter registration process and then vote from the comfort of their home, office, or other internet location. Accessibility features of internet voting make this a convenient alternative to casting your ballot at a polling location in person. Details about how to register for online voting will be available in August.

On election day, all regular voting locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Each location is specific to your ward and your address. Later this year, you'll receive a Voter Information Notice (VIN) to tell you which location and poll you can vote at. This is the poll that you must cast your ballot on if you choose to vote on election day.
Special Voting Locations
On election day, special voting locations operate with reduced opening hours so that residents of the specific retirement home, nursing home, institution or rest home can cast their ballots. These locations cannot be used by other voters.
