Offices and Candidates 

The Mayor is elected at large, which means all eligible voters choose from the same mayoral candidates when voting. Councillors are elected to represent one of six wards, one Councillor per Ward. Eligible voters choose from the councillor candidates for the voter's respective ward when voting.

For the 2014 Municipal Election in Seguin Township, there was only one certified candidate registered in each of Ward 2, Ward 4 and Ward 6; therefore those candidates were acclaimed. Therefore there will only be elections for the positions of Mayor, Councillor Ward 1, Councillor Ward 3 and Councillor Ward 5 in Seguin Township in 2014; as well as the English Public, English Separate and French Separate School Board Trustees (French Public was also acclaimed).
