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, that 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) starting Monday, October 29 to election day, Monday, December 10.

The following locations of the City Clerk's Office are open for Voters' List Amendment Applications and proxies Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The proxy certificates are also available during the advance vote, Saturday December 1 from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. at the Election Services Office, 89 Northline Road.

The elector appointed must present both copies of the proxy appointment form in person along with acceptable identification of both the elector making the appointment (photocopies acceptable) and the elector appointed (original copy) to the City Clerk or designate for certification.
