Our Monday 25 June Programme:

Our speaker on Monday will be Glynis Tucker, Communications & Outreach, Municipal Elections for the City of London. Her topic is “Ranked Choice Voting”.
Why Ranked Choice Voting? On Monday, October 22, 2018, London will become the first municipality in Canada to vote using Ranked Choice Voting. Every municipality in Ontario was given the option to choose Ranked Choice Voting for the upcoming 2018 Municipal Elections.  The decision to vote using Ranked Choice had to be made by May 1st, 2017. London's Elections Office sought online public input for several months and held four public information/engagement sessions across the city leading up to May 1st.  The feedback received was presented to Council, who ultimately made the decision to move forward in 2018 using Ranked Choice.
What is Ranked Choice Voting? The City of London will be using Ranked Choice Voting on Elections Day - Monday, October 22, 2018 for the elected positions of Mayor and City Councillor. Ranked Choice Voting is a preferential voting method, in which voters choose and rank their top three candidates in order (1st, 2nd, 3rd). Also referred to as "Instant-runoff voting", a winner is declared when a candidate receives 50 percent plus one or more of the total votes cast.

We will be meeting at the London Convention Centre in Salon H,J on the ground floor.
