Your Voter Information Letter (VIL) will arrive in late September and will provide internet voting instructions, including the voting website address, your voter identification number and PIN. Use these to sign into your computer, laptop, tablet or phone to vote online, from anywhere.

You must have your VIL to vote online. If you did not receive your VIL in the mail, visit City Hall, email ThunderBayVotes@thunderbay.ca or call our help line at 622-VOTE (8683).

Every election is determined by the people who show up.
