The way we vote in Belleville has changed and there are some important things to know. Belleville has adopted Online and Phone voting for this upcoming election, which means that voters will not be going to polls as they traditionally have, instead being able to vote from home, work, or anywhere with a phone or internet connection. All you need is the pin in your voting letter, which you should receive before October 12th.
We understand that this change may be difficult for some residents which is why two VOTER ASSISTANCE CENTERS have been set up for this election. Below are the details that you need to know in order to take part in our municipal election, from the City of Belleville Website (link provided).
