More options to vote: advanced voting and Internet voting open this weekend
October 10, 2018 –
Vote in the municipal election online starting 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13. Saturday is also Advance Voting Day and you can cast your ballot in person at Advanced Voting places.
"We are pleased to offer multiple voting options for this election. Our aim is to make casting a ballot as convenient as possible. Using one of these options will mitigate long lines on Voting Day," says Janet Jaynes, assistant returning officer.
Voters are reminded that this year's municipal election ballot will include a Yes/No question about whether they are in favour of using a Ranked Ballot Voting system starting with the 2022 municipal election. Learn about Ranked Ballot Voting at www.CityofKingston.ca/RankedVoting.
