How to Vote in Toronto's Municipal Election 2

Earlier, I wrote about how to vote in the municipal election on Monday, November 10.

Everything I wrote in that article is true, however I implied that if you mail in the Application to Amend, you will be sent a voter notification card.

In fact, I discovered today that if you don't have a voter notification card yet, you're never going to get one. You had to be on the voters' list in September in order to get mailed a notification card. I think this is pretty lousy, since there was no enumeration for this election, and I think a lot of people didn't bother to vote in the previous Lastman vs. Gomberg showdown. So, many people who have lived in Toronto for a long time aren't on the list. Even if you are on the provincial list and voted on October 2, this doesn't have anything to do with the municipal list.

Anyway, don't let this stop you from voting! If you are a Canadian citizen who is 18 or older, and if you live in Toronto, you can vote. Voters' list or no voters' list, you have the right to vote.

Just show up at the poll with ID that shows your qualifying address in the City.
