I’m going to be away and will miss both the advance vote and voting day. Can I still vote?
Yes! You can vote by proxy. A relative or friend can vote for you on your behalf. Both you and your voting proxy will need to fill out the Appointment for Voting Proxy Form before you leave. Contact your municipal clerk for more information on how to appoint a proxy at 905-338-4178.

How many candidates can I vote for?
In Oakville, voting is at-large, not by ward. You can vote for up to 3 trustees. Your vote is not ranked. You are eligible to vote for any 3 Trustees that best represent you. You are not obligated to vote for all three.
