In accordance with section 12.1(3) of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, following the 2022 municipal election, the Clerk shall prepare a report about the identification, removal and prevention of barriers that affect electors and candidates with disabilities.
The Town of Minto released this report on Monday January 23, 2023.
The Town of Minto is committed to providing services and facilities that are accessible to all. An accessibility plan has been developed as a guide in order to identify measures to be taken to ensure that election-related services are provided in an accessible manner.
Vote by Mail
The Town of Minto is using the Vote by Mail voting method for the 2022 Municipal Election. Voter kits are mailed to voters whose names are listed on the Voters’ List and voters can complete their kit at their convenience before mailing kits back to the Town.
Instead of Voting locations or polls, Ballot Return Stations will be established for voters to drop off their completed voter kit. If eligible voters have not received a voter kit in the mail, they can obtain a voter kit from Election Officials at a Ballot Return Station. Voters can complete their voter kit on-site at a Ballot Return Station and deposit their completed kit within a drop box, secured and submit it to an Election Official at a Ballot Return Station.

Ballot Return Stations
Every effort has been made to ensure that every Ballot Return Station is accessible.

Your feedback on our Accessibility Plan is essential to us providing an accessible election for all voters. With your help and feedback, we can continue to learn and adjust our approaches to meet the needs of persons with disabilities.
