Voter Information for Municipal Elections

To vote in a municipal election, you must be:

  • 18 years of age,
  • a Canadian citizen, and
  • a resident of the municipality for the past six months.

Can I vote if I own property or a business in the municipality but I’m not a resident?

No, you can only vote if you live and have lived in the municipality for at least six months prior to the election, you are a Canadian citizen, and you are 18 years of age or older.

May I see a list of voters for my community?

Contact the chief administrative officer in your community to view a list of voters. Municipalities must provide a list of eligible voters to the public at least 21 days before an election.

When will I learn the results of a municipal election?

The Municipal Affairs section and Elections PEI will post the results of an election after all votes have been tallied. Contact your municipality for more information.
