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.
