 Voters' List

The Voters’ List is a list of eligible electors in the Town of Newmarket. During non-election years the Town of Newmarket does not maintain a Voters’ List. It is very important to check and make sure your information is correct on the Voters' List.

During an election cycle, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for preparing the preliminary list of electors for each municipality and school board in Ontario. It is MPAC’s Municipal Property Assessment database of both property owners and tenants that is used to prepare this preliminary list, which aids in the preparation of the final voters’ list for Election Day.

From now until end of July voters may log into MPAC’s online web tool VoterLookup.ca to check their voter eligibility.

Voterlookup.ca lets you:

  • confirm the accuracy of your elector information;
  • update your information where incorrectly recorded; and/or,
  • add a name to the enumeration so that it is correctly recorded for municipal and school board voting purposes.
