Ranked Ballot Voting
The 2018 municipal election ballot will include a yes/no question about whether residents want to use a Ranked Ballot Voting system to elect the mayor and district councilors in future municipal elections.
Right now, residents use a first past the post approach to elect local officials: the candidate with the most votes wins. A Ranked Ballot Voting system would allow residents to rank mayoral and district candidates in order of preference.
Find out more about how ranked ballots determine who is elected at one of these open houses:
Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018:
2 to 4 p.m. at Calvin Park Library, 88 Wright Cres.
6 to 8 p.m. at Sir John A. Macdonald Public School, 2nd floor library, 529 St. Martha St.
Thursday, Sept. 20, 2018:
2 to 4 p.m. at the INVISTA Centre, Meeting Room AB, 1350 Gardiners Rd.

An education campaign on Ranked Ballot Voting will continue until the 2018 municipal election on Monday, Oct. 22.
