    Residents of Seguin Township have been fortunate that the Seguin mayor and Council have been excellent. Seguin is in very good financial condition. Property taxes (mill rate) are lower than surrounding townships such as TML. The Seguin Official plan puts the “environment first“. And this policy is carried out by measures such as Recreational Carrying Capacity. 

    Your vote is important.   Decisions at the municipal level include road maintenance and construction, land use planning, environmental services such as garbage and recycling, and, of course, property taxes!  Waterfront property owners represent a significant proportion of the voters in Seguin. 

    Voting opens – October 9th and will continue until October 22nd.

    Voting in Seguin will be done electronically.  This means that you can vote from anywhere in the world by phone or by internet.  If you are on the voters’ list, you will receive a PIN and instructions by mail towards the end of September.  For more information on how this will work visit the Seguin Election Webpage and click on the topic: Internet and Telephone Voting.

    Make sure you are on the Voters List

    Canadian citizens who own or rent property in Seguin are eligible to vote. Contact the Municipal Office (705) 732-4300 or attend in person to check that you and your spouse are on the list

    Eligibility requirements are detailed in on the Seguin website (pdf).  And in more detail in the 2018 Voters' guide for Ontario municipal and school board elections (pdf).

    Staff at the Seguin office will help you to apply to be added if needed. Changes and corrections can be made to the close of voting, Oct 22, but it’s easier to do it now.
