City extends in person voting until 9:15 p.m.
October 22, 2018 –
The City of Kingston is one of a number of municipalities that have been affected by online voting issues. Internet voting became inaccessible at approximately 5:45 p.m. this evening. This was due to Dominion Voting Systems being unable to process the amount of traffic on their internet site. This affects all municipalities that are users of the Dominion Voting System.
The hours of voting for a municipal election are from 10 a.m. through to 8 p.m. However, given the difficulties experienced with internet voting and in an effort to provide the public with sufficient time to vote, the City Clerk has the ability to make a decision pursuant to the provisions of Section 53(1) of the Municipal Election Act that when circumstances arise that prevent the election from being conducted in accordance with the act, an emergency can be declared.
"I am making this declaration of an emergency and have decided to extend the hours for in person voting at all voting places until 9:15 p.m., John Bolognone, City Clerk for the City of Kingston.
Updates will continue to be provided via the City's website and social media accounts. Find your voting place at www.CityofKingston.ca/VoteInPerson
