The Town of Georgina is asking voters not to vote more than once after some voters received duplicate Voter Information Letters (VIL) in the mail.
The letter provides a voter with a unique pin that allows them to vote online from October 8 to 23.
According to the Town’s Clerk Division, a data error is responsible for the foul-up
“Municipalities receive their voters’ lists from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC), and due to an issue in transferring the MPAC data to those lists, some Ontario residents, including some in Georgina, have received two VILs,” the statement reads.
“While this is not unique in the municipal election process, there may be a greater number of these occurrences in this election.”
The Town wants voters who receive duplicate VILs to bring the letter that matches your identification to an in-person poll to vote.
According to the Town, you can dispose of the duplicate or post it, marked “Duplicate Return to Sender,” in any Canada Post mailbox. You can also bring it to the poll and give it to an election official.
