Burlington Municipal Election – Please Get out and Vote!

Elections 2014 MastheadOn Monday, Ontario residents will go to the polls to elect their local municipal government representation. In Burlington, the polls open at 10 am and will be open until 8 pm Monday night. A list of polls is available online.

I encourage everyone to vote. It is both a democratic right and responsibility.

Municipal and Regional government is the level of government that most intimately connects and interacts with residents of a community. It is responsible for so many of the services and amenities that are essential to our daily lives: transit, waste management, community planning and building, emergency services and community policing.

Local government is about shaping the community and improving the community not only for today’s residents, but for future residents and generations to come.

The list of registered candidates is available through the City of Burlington’s Election webpages; many of the candidates have listed individual links to their own websites. If you have not had a chance to meet the candidates in person, this is a great way to find out more information.

The Burlington Post has also been covering the municipal election through their print and online platforms and much is available online.

For more information about the election, please visit the City’s election website.
