Campaign Signage Information
In order to avoid any confusion, we want to ensure that all candidates have the information required before any signs are installed.
Candidates may post signs on Boulevards and Public Property provided that:
- The size does not exceed 3 square meters (32.0 sq feet)
- The signs are not encroaching over a street or driveway
- The horizontal clearance of the sign is at least .6m (2 feet) from the street and more than 3 meters (10 feet) from the property line.
Candidates may only put up signs on Private Property if they have the property owner's permission.
As a courtesy to Property Owners, we ask you request permission to post campaign signs on boulevards adjacent to their property.
Please aim to have your election signs removed within one week after the election by November 1, 2022.
Voter eligibility for Mayor / Councillor
To vote for Mayor / Councillor, you must be:
- a Canadian citizen; and
- 18 years of age or older on Election Day (October 26, 2022); and
- an actual resident or property owner in the Grandview Municipality for a period of at least six months (since April 26, 2022)
The following determines the residency of a voter:
- voter is a resident of the place where they have their ordinary residence, and to which they intend to return when away from it
- voter may be a resident of only one place at a time
- voter does not change residence until they have a new residence
A person who leaves a municipality for temporary reasons is still considered a resident voter. For example, a student attending university or college outside the municipality, but who intends to return home after the term ends, is considered a resident voter.
A voter may vote only once in the same election, regardless of whether they own multiple properties.
