Blog Guelph: Municipal Elections

it's not working, originally uploaded by vw-busman.

Guelphites will be asked to go to the polls on November 13th to determine who will be running our city for the next four years.

In my mind, this is important stuff. Think garbage, water, sprawl and traffic.... that's the job of local government.

Unfortunately, 64% of the eligible voters in our city DID NOT bother to cast their vote in our last election. As a result of this somewhat disturbing percentage, the Guelph Civic League was born. One of their stated goals is to increase the percentage of voting public to at least 50%.

Their website is pretty darn comprehensive. In fact, they even provide a page of candidate names and contacts currently registered in the race.
