Toronto Voters Urged to Cast a Ballot this Monday|
| || ||
The City of Toronto is urging eligible voters in Toronto to participate in the
City's municipal election this Monday, November 13.
"Municipal government is a level of government that touches people's everyday
lives. It's very important to each of us," said City Clerk Novina Wong. "During
our advance polls this year, we've had over 25,000 people come out and vote.
That's very encouraging. We hope the interest continues Monday, especially
among new Canadians and first-time voters."
In 1997, 47 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots in the municipal election.
Ms. Wong is hopeful that voter turnout will meet or exceed 1997's numbers.
The City's Web site will start displaying results shortly after 8 p.m. The
unofficial election results will be known by 11 p.m. Official election results
will be released on Thursday, November 16.
Voting places open at 10 a.m. on Monday and close at 8 p.m. There are 1,684
places to vote in the City's 44 wards. Eligible voters should bring their
Vote2000 vote-at-cards and a piece of identification with them when they vote.
Voters can also determine their voting location by visiting the City's Web
