Huge Voter Turnout in Advance Polls

electionbadge90.jpg Whatever other disappointments this election may hold, here’s one happy development: voter turnout is up. Way up. Up more than 80% from 2003, the last time the mayor’s race was wide open. So far 77,397 Torontonians have cast their ballots, in what is hopefully a very promising sign of things to come. No matter the outcome of this election, we’re all better off with higher rates of civic participation; fingers crossed this turnout rate holds up on election day. Advance polls are now closed and all remaining voting will take place on October 25. If you haven’t received voter information in the mail and you’re not sure where to go to cast your ballot, the City has a handy tool to help you find out.
