Advance voting begins for City of Toronto's municipal election
Eligible voters in the City of Toronto can cast their vote starting Monday,
October 23 as advance voting begins for the November 13 municipal election at
City Hall and the City's five civic centres.

Advance voting will use 18 touch screen voting units between October 23 and
November 3, from noon to 6 p.m. As well, advance voting is available on
Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, November 5, from noon to 6 p.m.

Advance voting will also take place on Saturday, November 4 and Wednesday,
November 8 from noon to 8 p.m. at one location in each of the City's 44 wards.
Distinct City of Toronto vote-at-cards are being mailed to voters the week of
October 30. The vote-at-card lists where voters will vote on Election Day, as
well the location of the advance voting place in their ward.

"This year we have attempted to give Toronto voters as many opportunities as
possible to vote and participate in the municipal election," said City Clerk,
Novina Wong. "Voters don't need a special reason to vote early. But by doing so
they beat the rush of voters at voting places on Election Day."

This year, electors will be choosing one mayor, one councillor and one school
board trustee in each ward. Two wards, Ward 27 and Ward 43, have acclaimed
councillors and, therefore, will only elect a mayor and trustee.

Voters are reminded to ensure they are on the voters' list by calling
416-338-1111. As well, to speed up the voting process, voters are asked to
bring identification to voting places.
