A GUIDE TO HOW VOTING WORKS:
VOTING DAY IS MONDAY, OCTOBER 27TH!
I need general information about a municipal election:
How do I vote?
HOW DOES VOTING WORK? WHO CAN YOU VOTE FOR?
The municipal election has many different positions:
3 Local and Regional Councillors (That's me!)
5 Ward Councillors
1 School Trustee per board
The Mayor and Local and Regional Councillors are elected throughout the 5 Wards of Vaughan. Meaning there is 1 Mayor and 3 regional councillors. This means you are able to vote for up to 3 regional councillors.
Within each ward, you can vote for one ward councillor. This is the councillor that represents your specific area, who can raise concerns about that areas specific needs and present them to the mayor and regional councillors.
Advanced polls are now closed, but you can vote on voting day, Monday, October 27th!
My name is Carrie Liddy and I'm running for Regional Councillor.
Since moving to Vaughan, I have been an active member of my community. My family and I have called Vaughan home for the past 20 years and I wanted to give back to my community in a tangible way.
The issues that I am hearing all throughout Vaughan are the same, taxes, traffic and the hospital.
Our city has become unaffordable. Taxes have increased and services have decreased. Like any household, Vaughan needs to live within it’s means. Let’s stop the wasteful spending and put money into programs that will increase the quality of life for all residents.
Traffic is destroying our city and taking hours away from our families as we sit idling on jammed city streets. We are not going to be able to fix traffic congestion overnight, but we need a plan and we need to stick to it! We need all levels of government to step up to the plate and make firm commitment for funding of projects that will alleviate traffic congestion.
And finally, the Vaughan Hospital. It’s been over 10 years of photo ops and everyone patting themselves on the back. Candidates are talking about the need for a hospital in Vaughan, but are they truly committed and will they do whatever it takes to bring a hospital to Vaughan?
I am committed to a hospital in Vaughan, so much so that I am putting my money where my mouth is. If elected, I will donate 10% of my salary to the Vaughan Hospital.
On October 27th, I would be honoured if you were to entrust me with one of your three votes for Regional Councillor.
