At next Thursday’s Corporate Services, Strategy, Risk and Accountability (CSSRA) Committee meeting, staff from the clerks department will be bringing forward a report on voting options for the 2022 municipal election and ranked ballots.
This report is looking to get direction from Council to inform the RFP process to obtain a vote tabulation system for the 2022 municipal election. In November 2016, staff committed to provide an overview of ranked ballot activities that occurred during the 2018 Ontario municipal election, the summary contained in this report satisfies that commitment. Staff will also be seeking direction on ranked ballots, as there is a legislated public consultation process with a deadline of May 1, 2021.
Below is the staff recommendation, and the full report is available via this link: CL-06-20 Voting options for 2022 and ranked ballots.
The CSSRA Committee meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. and can be watched virtually online at burlington.ca/calendar.
