Toronto Elections: soon we will have a new face in the Mayor’s Office

On Monday, June 26, 1,445 voting locations will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. After the end of the early voting period and after a full day at the polls, the Mayor’s Office will have a new face that will assume the leadership of the city.

Former councilwoman and New Democratic Party, MP Olivia Chow, remains the favorite in the race, according to various polls.

The pollsters also don’t agree on the classification of their main opponents, who are Mark Saunders, Ana Bailão, Josh Matlow, Anthony Furey, Mitzie Hunter and Bradford.

Voters are encouraged to find out if they are on the voters’ list. Learn where and when to vote. View, download or print their Voter Information Card (if on the voters’ list). Check the candidates running. Find accessibility information about their voting place and review a sample of the ballot.

Eligible voters are also reminded to bring identification that shows their name and qualifying Toronto address and their Voter Information Card (VIC) when they go to vote. If an eligible voter on the voters’ list does not receive a VIC by mail, they can visit MyVote  to print a VIC or download a digital copy to their smartphone, which can be shown at the voting location, along with acceptable identification. A VIC is not required to vote.

Eligible voters who are not on the voters’ list can add their name to the list at their voting location on election day. Voters can search their address using MyVote to find their election day voting location.

After six consecutive days, the advance vote period for Toronto’s by-election for mayor ended on June 13.
