Hello. In the training manual for the Municipal Election for as long as I can remember, there was a notion with respect to the eligibility of campground tenants to vote. Would you be able to provide any background with respect to what is contained in the training manuals? I am being challenged by a member of Council and want to be able to explain the training materials. Thanks for any help. Angie

The Township of Adjala - Tosorontio currently uses paper ballots and manual counting. For 2018 we are looking at perhaps changing our process to either paper and internet, internet and phone, paper and tabulators and have to put a budget together for 2016. I am trying to figure out where to start and would like any assistance that is out there i.e. reports detailing options, RFP's, budget reports etc. You can either post here or directly to me at bkane@adjtos.ca Thank you

Election Advertising
The Ontario Community Newspapers Association distributes information to our member newspapers about advertising and editorial regulations as set out in the Municipal Elections Act. I understand Clerk's can set regulations to conduct elections. How often would regulations be set that impact local newspapers? For example, have they set blackout periods for advertising on election day? How are regulations communicated to newspapers? Anne Lannan, Executive Director
