MPAC reps were promoting the VoterLookup.ca website at Intercity Shopping Centre Friday.
Voter registration for this fall’s municipal election is just a click away.
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation has launched VoterLookup.ca, a website where voters can check to see if they are registered for the Oct. 27 election.
The site is new this year and MPAC representatives were at Intercity Shopping Centre near the food court Friday to inform citizens of the site and how it works.
“It will go a long way to ensuring the list we provide to the municipality are complete and accurate,” said Laura Voltti, municipal relations representative for MPAC.
Voltti said the site will also help avoid the issue of people coming out to vote only to find out they aren’t registered.
It will also hopefully aid in increasing voter turnout.
“It goes hand-in-hand with creating the awareness this election is coming and it’s important to exercise that right,” said Voltti.
The VoterLookup.ca booth will be at the mall until 7 p.m. Friday and will return on Aug. 21 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
