Notice of Bylaw - Voter Identification Bylaw #004-21

 

Council approved the Voter Identification Bylaw at the March 16, 2021 Regular Meeting of Council. Visit chestermere.ca/agendas to view the meeting recording. 


The proposed Voter Identification Bylaw provides for the number and types of identification required to be produced by a person to verify their name and address for the purpose of determining their eligibility to vote in the municipal election.

In accordance with the proposed Bylaw, there are three options to provide identification:

  • Option 1: provide one piece of government-issued identification which contains a photograph of the elector and the elector’s legal name and current address (i.e. driver’s license, etc.);
  • Option 2: provide two pieces of identification that contain the elector’s name and at least one containing the elector’s current address, as seen in Schedule A of the proposed Bylaw (i.e. credit card statement, utility bill, mortgage statement, etc.); or
  • Option 3: provide a letter or form (attestation) that contains the elector’s legal name and current address, as seen in Schedule A of the proposed Bylaw (i.e. authorized representative of a post-secondary institution, authorized representative of a supportive living facility or treatment centre, etc.).

To submit your opinions to Council, please click here to fill out the feedback form. Please indicate which proposed bylaw you are addressing and if you are in favour or opposition. Your full name, address, phone number and email are required to complete the form and validate your submission. Your name and opinion may be used in the public record.
