We will have a photocopier on hand to ensure you have copies of your ID (which needs to be included with your ballot for your vote to be valid), and will provide step-by-step instructions for filling in your ballot, assembling it in the provided envelopes, including your ID and sending it back to the party.

We hope to see you on Tuesday May 9th.

Please note: The Etobicoke-Lakeshore Conservative EDA is not endorsing any one particular candidate in this election. Our mission is to ensure all of our eligible members vote and do so correctly. There will be no campaigning on behalf of any candidates during this session. The session is meant to help members with the procedures on HOW to vote.

Should you have any questions about this event or voting procedures in general, please call us at 416-237-0505 or email at [email protected].

Please remember you can also bring your ballot with you and vote in person at the Toronto Congress Centre at 650 Dixon Rd., on Saturday, May 27th from 10:00am to 4:00pm.


After months of membership drives, debates, and local visits, we are about to choose a new leader, May 27th.

Yes, it’s Voting Time, but we know that some members are finding the process somewhat confusing.

If you have received your ballot already but are finding it difficult to assemble all the paperwork, we've put together these steps to make sure you fill out your ballot correctly … and on time: 

Step 1: Take note:  When you receive it in the mail, you will see the following in the Conservative marked envelope: 

- [1] Selection Card (The actual Ballot which has 14 candidates and 10 slots for your ranked choices)

- [2] Secrecy envelope for the ballot 

- [3] Declaration (eligibility to vote)

- [4] Return Envelope 

Step 2: Identification:  In order for your vote to count, the party must be able to confirm your identity to be a valid voter.  That means, you must submit a copy of ID(s) showing your name and current address with your ballot.  Simply copy the ID(s) and you're half way done! .

Step 3: Declaration:  Sign the declaration form [3] which affirms your eligibility to vote. 

Step 4: Make your selection:  Here is the fun part! You can select up to 10 candidates in preferential order. You can only vote for one candidate one time and you can only pick one candidate per number. For example, you cannot pick Candidate A as your 1st and 2nd choice and you cannot pick Candidate A and B as tied for your 1st choice. One candidate per one ranked number. 

You must completely fill in the circle that corresponds to your candidate under the ranked choice you are selecting. NO checkmarks, NO lines, NO Xs.  The circle must be filled in fully and neatly as possible to be properly read by the computer. If you do not fill in the circle as shown, your ballot could be rejected. 

Step 5: Assemble:  Fold and insert your completed ballot [1] into the secrecy envelope [2]

- Insert the secrecy envelope [2], the declaration card [3] and your ID copies into the return envelope [4]

Drop it off at the post office and you are all set! Ballots must be received by May 26th to be eligible so vote early!  Mailed ballots must be in the mail by May 18th to ensure they arrive by the May 26th deadline.

Please note you also have the option to vote in person at:

The Toronto Congress Centre on Dixon Rd. on Saturday, May 27th, 2017 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Happy voting!
