Internet and Telephone Voting will be used in the upcoming municipal election. Internet and telephone voting will be available for all eligible voters within the Municipality during the voting period. Voters will be able to cast their vote remotely using their own devices (i.e., laptop, smart phone, or tablet) in the comfort of their own home, at a time that most suits their schedule, or at the municipal office during regular office hours using a device supplied by the Municipality.
