YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ELECT 8 COUNCILLORS

SOME ELECTION STRATEGY TO CONSIDER
JUST VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATES YOU LIKE

Just because there are eight city councillor seats on city council does not mean you have to cast your ballot for all eight!

If you really don't like ANY of the candidates you don't have to give your support to anyone, and if that is your informed opinion and your choice, then good for you. You have been engaged and informed and did not like any of the candidates running for office. Not voting just because you are too lazy and are ignoring your civic duty is another matter.

If however, there are only one or two candidates you think are worthy of your vote, then just cast your ballot for them, and don't vote for anyone else if you really don't like the options. Holding you nose and casting your ballot for people you are not sure about is not a great example of how democracy should work.

You are likely defeating yourself if you cast ballots for several candidates you really don't want to vote for, but do anyway just because you think you should.

If there is only ONE candidate you want to see on city council, then just vote for the one candidate and you will greatly improve their chances of getting elected.

JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT AS ELECTION DAY DRAWS CLOSER.

  1. Good point . I hope those voting for school trustees remember it also applies to the School Board.

  2. And beside the incumbent's name on the ballot, how about putting the total amount of tax money the councilor or mayor voted in favour of over the last three-year term? !!!
