*Please see below a news release issued by the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont. – March 31, 2021 — In preparation for the upcoming 2022 municipal election, the City of Burlington is asking residents for their input on a number of election-related topics. Residents can share their thoughts and ideas on topics such as voting methods, election signage, voter turnout and more, by completing an online survey at getinvolvedburlington.ca/elections2022.

Feedback gathered from the survey will be used to inform a report to Burlington City Council about preparation activities for the 2022 municipal election.  The 2022 municipal election will take place on Oct. 24, 2022.

The survey is available now and will be open until 11:55 p.m. on April 23, 2021.

“Planning for municipal elections begins months in advance to ensure election procedures, programs and technology are in place on voting day. As we continue this work, we are looking for residents to share their views and perspectives on how we can improve the election experience and ensure it continues to be a fair, transparent and balanced process.” — Kevin Arjoon, Burlington City Clerk 

Quick Facts:

  • In addition to voting, there are a number of ways for the public to get involved in their local government:
    • Speak at an upcoming Committee or Council meeting – Speaking, or delegating, at a board, committee or City Council meeting is a great way to share views with members of City Council. Registration is required to speak at a meeting and comments must relate to an item on the agenda. Learn more
    • Make a presentation at an upcoming Committee or Council meeting – Local boards, agencies, commissions, City staff and other levels of government may submit a request to make a presentation at an upcoming standing committee meeting. Presentations must address matters relevant to the city and seek to provide information or receive input from members of the Committee. Presentations are heard at the beginning of Committee meetings and a maximum of 10 minutes is provided. Learn more
    • Submit  correspondence – the Office of the City Clerk can assist in distributing correspondence from the public to member of City Council. Learn more
    • Submit a petition – The Office of the City Clerk accepts petitions related to matters listed on an upcoming standing Committee agenda. A petition is a written request signed by more than one member of the public in support of a shared cause or concern. Learn more

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
