Q: Why should I vote anyways? I’m just a student.
A: Decisions made at the city level impact your daily life more than any other level of government. Municipal governments often have the influence and ability to address many key issues that impact students, like transit, housing, sustainability and other equity issues. As students and young voters, you have the opportunity to cast your vote and use your voice.
Q: Are you sure I’m eligible to vote?
A: Students should check eligibility requirements on the City of Toronto website.
Q: Who should I vote for?
A: That’s a great question! You should read and research the candidates for Mayor and the City Councillor and School Trustee candidates in your riding.

The Provincial Government sets the rules for who is eligible to vote in Municipal Elections. They have set specific rules for students and residents who live in the municipalities (eg Toronto, Pickering, Brampton, etc.).
Determining your eligibility
Generally, to vote in Municipal Elections, you must:
- Be a Canadian Citizen; and
- Be at least 18 years old
- Live in the municipality you'd like to vote in*
Check your eligibility to vote in the City of Toronto.
* Students Living In Another City
There is a special rule for students who may be living away from home while they attend school. If you are a student and consider your “home” to be the place where you live when you are not attending school (that is, you plan on returning there), then you are eligible to vote in both your “home” municipality and in the municipality where you live while attending school.
Keep in mind, you may still only vote once in one municipality.
The Ontario Government has published a 2022 Voters' Guide for the Ontario municipal and council school board elections. Download the PDF for complete details on eligibility.
