The Candidate Access Portal offers controlled access for candidates to view elector list data that is applicable to their constituency.

With the Candidate Access Portal, www.candidateaccess.ca, candidates can view real-time data for eligible electors via a basic search capability. In addition to displaying elector information like name, property address, and mailing address, candidates can also view the strike-off status. Based on the customer’s choice, for electors that have voted, the Portal can also identify the voting channel (in person/mail/Internet/telephone), the voting location, and the date and time at which the elector was recorded as voted.

The Portal also provides candidates with the ability to extract delimited text files containing the elector data that they are entitled to view. These extracts are suitable for importation into Excel and allow candidates to obtain current elector data without requiring the involvement of municipal staff.
