I'd like to extend a personal thank you to my supporters!
During the 2014 municipal elections, as a voter, you have more opportunities to vote than in previous years. In addition to the actual voting day on Monday, October 27th, there are also two traditional advance voting days (October 9 & 18) and now three special advanced voting days (October 1, 2 & 3). That’s a total of six days you can vote, one such day being a Saturday and many including time during evening hours.
Regardless of which day you decide to vote on, I hope that you will make it out to vote. According to figures from the City of Ottawa, voter turnout in Bay Ward for the 2010 election was 51%. While 51% was better than most wards, higher voter turnout is always welcomed.
In the event that you’re unable to make it out to any of the voting days, you can appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf. There’s this information and more located on the city’s website, http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/your-city-government/2014-elections
When you cast a ballot, you’re not just deciding who will represent your interests at the council table, you are also deciding who you want to be making decisions that may affect your community for decades to come. If you’re looking to vote for a candidate who thinks beyond the next election, look no further than Trevor Robinson.
