Election Day

Election Day

Feb. 23, 2013 is the final day for voting in the municipal byelection. It is the official election day.

If a voter did not mail in their vote by Feb. 19, voting can still take place up to 8 p.m. on election day Feb. 23, 2016.

There are three opportunities to ensure your ballot is received and counted on election day:

  • Prior to, and including election day, return envelopes can be dropped off in the designated ‘mail box’ outside the first floor of City Hall, anytime;
  • On election day, return envelopes can be deposited at the satellite drop-off centre from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.;
  • If a voter did not receive a vote by mail kit, they can, upon presentation of required documentation at the satellite drop-off centre, receive a vote by mail kit on election day. The vote by mail kit can be completed on site and deposited into a ballot box at the satellite drop-off centre.

The Ward 4 Satellite Drop-off Centre is located as follows and are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016:

  • St. David's Presbyterian Church Hall. 98 Elizabeth Avenue

On Election Day, the process of ballot counting takes place. The ballot counting area is located in the Foran/Greene Room on the fourth floor of City Hall. Only election officials, candidates and one agent per candidate is permitted in the ballot counting area.

Election results will be released at City Hall and on the city’s website as they become available any time after 8 p.m. on election day.
