To vote in a municipal council or school board election, you need to be on the voters’ list as an elector.

The voters’ list is a list of eligible electors in the City of Burlington.

IF YOURE NOT ON THE LIST

Starting on Sept. 4, you must apply to the city clerk if you want to add your name to the voters’ list or correct your information. If your name is not on the list or your information is incorrect, you can complete an Application to Amend the Voters’ List form.
