One in three electors vote in municipal elections. Is this a good or bad thing?

September 6, 2022

Does it matter if 66% of voters do not vote?

In 2019, I was one of 17 candidates running in Ward 13. When called to debate, the time would be up before any cogent point could be made. It was insane, but to add to the lunacy questions such as “tea or coffee” or “ cake or pie” were posed by one erudite host.  

The successful candidate won by a paltry margin.  If more people voted would the outcome have changed?  Probably not.  The problem was the lack of a clear choice, not the lack of choice.  

Now there are four of us running in Rideau-Rockcliffe.  Each will bring their own set of skills and abilities and hopefully voters will look at the policy statements and make informed choices. We will all benefit from their good choices as Ottawa benefits from the election of the best council possible.
