The Candidates Have Had Their Say, Now it is Your Turn

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hAfter numerous candidate meetings and debates, Soap Box Saturdays, The Meaford Independent Election Guide, and countless doors knocked upon, the candidates for the 2014 municipal election have had plenty of opportunity to have their say, and to make their views and visions known.

At The Independent, we have always valued the views and input of our readers. Next month we celebrate five years since we first launched our little paper, and in those five years we have published nearly 700 letters from our readers. Election time is an especially important time for our readers to make their views known, so we have dedicated four pages of this week's print edition to letters we have received over the last two weeks - some have been published online, some are being published exclusively in our print paper. Some are short and sweet, others are long and exhaustively researched, and all, whether we agree with them or not, are valued expressions that deserve a platform.

It's Time to Vote – Do You Have Your Voter Letter?

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hToday, October 17, is the start of Meaford's municipal election voting period, which runs until Ontario's official municipal election day, October 27.

So beginning this morning, those who have received their voter letters in the mail, which contains their voter ID number along with a PIN number, can log on to the voting website, or make a phone call to cast their vote.

Electronic voting – an idea I have always supported in theory, and still do, however I am beginning to wonder how well this new system has been rolled out.

StephenVance bw 225w 200hWith all that is taking place in the world around us, it is quite easy to feel thankful as we head into this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. As we soak up the few remaining snow-less days while bracing ourselves for the shovelling and the subsequent sore backs that the coming winter will bring, it is a good time to reflect.
