Voter Eligibility

Voter eligibility for Mayor / Councillor

To vote for Mayor / Councillor, you must be:

  • a Canadian citizen; and
  • 18 years of age or older on Election Day (October 26, 2022); and
  • an actual resident or property owner in the City of Dauphin for a period of at least six months (since April 26, 2022)

The following determines the residency of a voter:

  • voter is a resident of the place where they have their ordinary residence, and to which they intend to return when away from it
  • voter may be a resident of only one place at a time
  • voter does not change residence until they have a new residence

A person who leaves a municipality for temporary reasons is still considered a resident voter. For example, a student attending university or college outside the municipality, but who intends to return home after the term ends, is considered a resident voter.

A voter may vote only once in the same election, regardless of whether they own multiple properties.
