Soo  launches its voter engagement

Take the survey online

SAULT STE MARIE, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  April 9, 2021  (LSN)  The City of Sault Ste. Marie invites community input on voting methods. The review will explore how residents may cast their ballot in the 2022 municipal election.

“The review is an opportunity to evaluate people’s preference with vote-counting equipment, alternative voting methods and voting locations,” says Madison Zuppa, Deputy City Clerk. “There are several ways in which votes can be made and counted including in-person manual count, in-person tabulator count, vote by mail, vote online and vote by phone.”

The City of Sault Ste. Marie has historically used paper ballot/manual count. In the 2018 municipal election, the City also provided a home visit program, where eligible voters could register to have a ballot box brought to their home providing greater accessibility for voters.

The review of voting methods is being done now so that any changes can be made before the 2022 municipal election.

Participate in the conversation online

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the voting methods review will take place online. Explore and learn more about voting methods, ask a question, and take the survey online by May 15, 2021. Paper copies of the survey are available upon request.

Attend the virtual information session on April 20, 2021

Attend our virtual information session where City staff will present information and answer questions. Virtual information sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 20, from 3-4 p.m. and 6-7 p.m. To participate in one of the sessions, you will need to pre-register by contacting the City’s Clerk office at 705-759-5388 or email election@cityssm.on.ca. A live feed of the meeting will be streamed on the City’s YouTube channel, and afterwards it will be available on the City’s website.

All feedback gathered throughout the engagement process will be considered as part of 2022 municipal election planning process.
