What to Expect From the New Council

E-mail Print PDF

StephenVance bw 225w 200hWith the 2014 municipal election over, many are wondering what to expect from the newly elected council after they take over in December.

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

E-mail Print PDF

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.
