City to Spend Thousands on Electoral Reform Campaign

The City is moving forward with its plan to educate voters on electoral reform.

Councillors approved to spend $25,000 on a campaign to teach residents how a ranked ballot system works.

The campaign is ahead of a planned referendum question on the subject, in next year's municipal election.

Instead of voting only for a single candidate, in a ranked ballot system, electors can rank the candidates in order of preference.

If voters approve moving ahead with a ranked balloting system, it would be implemented in the 2022 municipal election.
