Online voting reminders:
- Never share your Voting PIN. It’s personal and no one should ever ask you for it.
- It’s illegal to vote with or open a VIL that isn’t addressed to you.
- If you receive a VIL for someone who no longer lives at your property, do not open the letter. Instead, write Return to Sender on the envelope and drop it off at the nearest mailbox.
- If you receive multiple VILs addressed to you, contact the Voter Help Line at (289) 580-9774 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Voters may only vote once and must return any additional VILs to the Municipal Office.

The VIL contains detailed instructions on how to cast your ballot in-person or online. Voters are reminded to not share their VIL with anyone, including any candidates.
