How to vote

You can vote by mail or in-person on advance voting days or on Election Day. Important information regarding dates, times, and locations can be found on your voter notification card.

Vote by mail

The application period for Vote by Mail closed on Sept. 26, 2022. For those who requested a Vote by Mail kit, kits will be mailed to eligible electors beginning on Sept. 26, 2022. 

Eligible voters who have requested a kit, will receive a ballot package in the mail that includes instructions, a voter declaration card, a ballot, secrecy folder, and a postage pre-paid return envelope. The voter completes the declaration confirming they are eligible to vote and are casting their own ballot.

Once returned via mail to Town Hall, the voter’s name is crossed off the voters’ list, and the secrecy envelope containing the ballot is placed in a secure ballot box until Voting Day (Oct. 24, 2022). Once the ballot has been cast, it is no longer associated with the voter. Votes are counted using electronic tabulators once voting is closed.

Vote in person

If you don’t receive your voter notification card and are eligible, you can still vote.

You must bring your identification with you when you go to your voting location.

  1. Election staff will greet you once you arrive at the voting location.
  2. Present your identification and voter notification card. Staff will check if you’re eligible to vote. If you meet the requirements, you’ll be given a ballot in a secrecy folder.
  3. You will go behind a voting screen to complete your ballot. To vote for your chosen candidates, fill in the oval beside their names, and place your ballot back into the secrecy folder and give it to the Designated Election Official.

Vote by proxy

Voters can assign another eligible voter to vote on their behalf by filling out the proxy form. The assigned proxy voter can then attend in-person to complete the registration at the Town of Milton Town Hall, during regular business hours (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), and no later than 4:30 p.m. on October 24, 2022 (Election Day).
