London Ontario is the only municipality in Ontario that is considering the use of ranked ballots in the 2018 election.
Long known as a test-market for innovative companies, London is building upon their strong reputation as a leader in creativity and experimentation. We urge London City Council to move forward with a ranked ballot pilot project in 2018.
London Council will debate and vote on this item next Monday, May 1st. If they vote YES, London will become the first jurisdiction anywhere in Canada to move beyond the discredited First-Past-the-Post system. It would be a fantastic 150th birthday present for the country!
Ranked Ballots are a small and simple change to make local elections more fair, diverse and friendly. Explore our website to learn more about the benefits of ranked ballots - and myths. London City staff have also created some fantastic resources for citizens.
