Voting methods review

Voting methods review

Voting methods are the ways you cast your ballot. As a part of this review, we’ll explore voting methods that can be done remotely in addition to traditionally casting a paper ballot at a polling station.

We want to know how you feel about voting:

  • Phone
  • Internet
  • Mail

Take the survey online by December 4

We’re running a survey online to understand how you feel about remote voting options. Our feedback will be used to make changes to voting methods ahead of the 2022 municipal election.
