BE a VOTER
Welcome to my first e-newsletter for Ward 1. I hope you like the ‘One Ward’ name as it reflects one of the most important concepts I embrace:
Communication, Consultation and Collaboration.
This new Ward system will be confusing to some, but it is the way of the future. Looking at the advantages instead of the disadvantages is my focus. The primary advantage, in my opinion, is that now each resident will have a ‘go-to’ representative on Town Council and no longer will there be confusion about who to call when you need help. I’ll explore others in future newsletters.
To get information spread widely, I encourage you to invite your Ward 1 friends and neighbours to contact me and get on this mailing list. My target is to eventually have each of the 3500 households on the e-newsletter. Each newsletter will include different information that is timely.
Your VOTING OPTIONS
There is flexibility in which method you prefer and timing; all designed to make the voting experience convenient. That should result in greater voting than the 32% that voted in 2018. Note that all this information has been provided by the Town and is subject to change. Consult your voting card for more information. Go to https://www.aurora.ca/en/your-government/elections.aspx for all Town published election information.
Your first concern is ensuring you are on the Voters list. You can find that here as well as how to get on the list:
From October 14 at 10:00 am to October 23 at 12.00 pm, voting is open online.
- Check your mail in early October for your Voter Notification Card.
- Go online to aurora.ca/vote2022 and register to vote with the following:
- Date of Birth
- Voter ID Number (found on your Voter Notification Card)
- Collect your unique PIN
Choose to have your PIN emailed to you immediately.
You are then ready to vote online from the home, office or anywhere in the world, so you don’t miss your vote!
