A general election will be held on October 26, 2022.

Any voter who is unable to go in person to the voting place, or vote in advance, may apply in person, in writing, or by fax to vote by sealed envelope. The Application to Vote by Sealed Envelope can be mailed or emailed to the Senior Election Official at City Hall, 97 Saskatchewan Avenue East, Portage la Prairie, Manitoba between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Mail or Fax

If applying by mail or fax, a voter may apply between July 28, 2022 and October 23, 2022. The application must state the applicant’s name, address and telephone number. The application must also include legible photocopies of identification and a declaration of eligibility. A voter applying by mail or fax will receive a sealed envelope ballot package by regular post, if the application is received by the S.E.O. 12 or more days before the election. If the application is received less than 12 days before the election, the voter may make alternative arrangements with the S.E.O. to have the ballot delivered to ensure it can be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. This could include designating a family member to pick up the ballot package. The S.E.O. may require the family member to produce identification and take oath as to his/her relationship with the voter.

In Person

If applying in person, a voter may apply between September 28, 2022 and October 23, 2022. A voter applying in person may pick up a sealed envelope ballot package at the time of application.
