Re: Repeal and Replacement of the Electronic Voting By-law

On May 26, 2020, Municipal Council gave notice of its intention to repeal the existing Electronic Voting By-law that was adopted by Council on May 24, 2016 and to replace it with a new By-law Respecting Alternative Voting and conducted and approved First Reading.

The existing By-law included the 2016 Municipal Election dates for alternate voting. The By-law needed to be amended specifying that Council would, by resolution, set the alternative polling days for each election. The existing By-law outlines the authorization and methods for alternative voting but did not include information on the alternative voting procedure. The new proposed by-law outlines, in more detail, the methods for alternative voting, the process and regulations for same, allows for Council to set the Alternative Polling Days by resolution for each election, and sets the offences and penalties for violating the By-law.

Notice is hereby given that Municipal Council will be conducting Second Reading to repeal the existing By-law and to consider adoption of the new By-law at their meeting of Council on June 23, 2020 which commences at 9:00 a.m. via telephone and video conference.

The Council will receive written submissions from interested persons concerning the above By-law. Written submissions must be received by the Municipal Clerk’s Office no later than 12:00 noon on Tuesday, June 16, 2020.
