Who is eligible to vote?

Eligible voters from Municipal or Affiliate Members may register to vote.

Municipal Members
Are you an elected official from a municipality that belongs to FCM? If so, you may register to vote.

Affiliate Members
Affiliate Members may nominate up to two people to vote in the elections and AGM. If an Affiliate Member doesn’t submit a nomination form, we will automatically hold a spot for the PTA’s President, who must then register to vote. Additional voters are taken on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as the Affiliate Member provides written consent.

Register to vote

As per our voting calendar, voter registration is now closed.

How you vote

If you’re a registered voter, use the FCM voting instructions for virtual elections to vote in the Table Officer and Director elections. On the day the elections open (September 28 and October 5, respectively) and the day of the AGM (October 15), you’ll get a reminder email with important links to use during the voting process.

Voting options

Online: The easiest and most secure way to vote is through our low-bandwidth, online voting platform.

By phone: You may vote by phone if you have a poor internet connection (or none). Phone voting is not encrypted and is less secure than online voting.
