The voters' list for the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) by-election on February 27, 2012 for TDSB wards 17 and 20 is now available.

Proxy Voting Certificates

If an elector cannot vote, for any reason, on any of the available voting days, he or she may appoint someone as a proxy to vote on his or her behalf. The proxy must be someone who is an eligible elector in Toronto and who the elector trusts to vote in accordance with her or his wishes.

An elector may act on behalf of:
• one other qualified elector who is not a relative, or
• one or more qualified electors who are relatives, using separate proxy forms for each.

The City will mail proxy appointment forms to electors, which can be requested by phoning 416-338-1111 (TTY service 416-338-0889). Proxy appointment forms are also available from City Clerk's Office locations (listed below) Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. starting Monday, January 16 to election day, Monday, February 27, and during the advance vote, Saturday February 18 and Sunday February 19 from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m.
