VOTE NOW TO SAVE MUSKOKA!

Voting in Muskoka is underway and the numbers of people who have voted so far are at normal levels compared to previous elections. We are expecting some close races – so please Vote Now!! 

You can vote online or by telephone between now and 8pm on October 22nd. Just follow the instructions in the Voting Information Letter you should have received in the mail. If you have not received this voting letter, please call your municipal office.

PROBLEMS WITH THE VOTING SYSTEM

Some voters have experienced these problems with the new online and telephone voting system:
  1. For telephone voting, the voice prompt is not clear about whether to enter the ‘last 8’ or the ‘left 8’ numbers from your voter identification number. It is the last 8 numbers. 
  2. For telephone voting, wait until the voice prompt finishes speaking so you hear the full instructions. For example, sometimes you will need to press # after entering numbers.
  3. Many people have asked us who we recommend for school board trustee. Since Friends of Muskoka and the MLA have not interviewed school board trustee candidates, we cannot make any recommendations. Information on these candidates is available online 
  4. For telephone voting you can skip any race by double clicking the star button twice. Make sure to double click quickly. 
  5. Gravenhurst voters should check their ballots before voting to make sure they indicate the correct Ward. Some Gravenhurst ballots indicate the wrong Ward, and a new ballot will not be issued if you vote for the wrong Ward. Contact the Gravenhurst clerk at 705-687-3412 x200, or elections@gravenhurst.ca if you need a corrected ballot.
  6. For online voting, enter the website address starting with ‘www.’ -- do not enter the letters ‘http://’
  7. If you encounter any problems with online voting, please exercise caution and call your municipal office for assistance. Do not hit the ‘submit’ button or your incomplete ballot will be cast.
