Who Can Be A Voter?

Any person who is a U.S. citizen, has reached the age of 18 years, and is a bona fide resident of Canton may register to vote in Canton. A bona fide resident of Canton is someone whose home is in this town and, if temporarily absent, to which he/she intends to return. A 17-year-old who fulfills the other requirements may apply to register to vote. The registration becomes effective on his/her 18th birthday. An exception to this 17 year old rule applies if he/she turns 18 by the election, he/she is eligible to vote in the primary as a 17 year old.
