More voters participating in advanced polls

News Oct 20, 2010 Ancaster News

If advanced polls are any indication, it seems that more people are getting engaged with this fall’s municipal election.

In Ancaster’s Ward 12, 1,078 people cast ballots during an advanced poll from Oct. 1- 16, compared to 792 advanced poll voters in 2006. More Ancaster residents voted in advanced polls this year than several more densely populated inner city wards.

East Mountain’s Ward 7 had the highest number of advanced voters with 1,449. Ward 14 had the lowest number at 315. The Wentworth ward is also the city’s most sparsely populated electoral district. Ward 14 councillor Robert Pasuta has been acclaimed, which means voters in that area are only selecting mayoral and school trustee candidates.

A total of 12,288 voters cast an advanced poll ballot compared to 10,057 in 2006, an increase of more than 18 per cent.
