Elections

The Township of Douro-Dummer holds a municipal election every four years to elect the Mayor and Council as well as school board trustees. The next election will take place on October 24, 2022 and Council has chosen to continue with the use of Internet and Telephone voting. 

Avoid additional paperwork by registering on our Voters' List. You can register up to and on the date of the Election. While you can be added to the Voter's List at the Municipal Office on the date of election, this may create delays and a longer waiting time. Make sure you give yourself enough time to both register and cast your vote.
