The vote will take place from THURSDAY DECEMBER 5 at 9:00 AM (Eastern Time) to  MONDAY DECEMBER 9 at 11:59 PM (Eastern Time) using CMG’s online automated voting system that’s run by an independent third-party.

When polls open on Thursday December 5 , you will receive an E-mail with your 9-digit CMG identification number.  You will also receive a 6-number randomly generated Pass Code.  This is different from years past and designed to increase voter security.  Previously,  the Pass Code was the 1 st 4 letters of your last name.

In order to be eligible to vote, you’ll need to be a card holding CMG member.  If you don’t know if you are a card holding member, please write to us at vote@cmg.ca or fill out: https://www.cmg.ca/en/membership-card/
