This is a release from the office of Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne:
Ontario is taking steps towards giving municipalities the option of using ranked ballots in future municipal elections.
As outlined in the 2014 mandate letter, the province is reviewing the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 to explore how ranked ballots could be implemented by municipalities across the province. Ranked ballots allow a voter to rank candidates in order of preference instead of voting for a single candidate. The option to use ranked ballots would give municipalities an alternative to the current municipal voting system.
