Burlington looking for election feedback

2022 Burlington election turnout fell below 30 percent

With a wide-open Mayoralty race and six council vacancies, Hamilton only managed a voter turnout of just over 35 percent. But in Burlington it was even worse with only 27.6 percent voting. Not surprisingly, the City of Burlington is looking for feedback from the community about the 2022 municipal election process. The online survey is available at getinvolvedburlington.ca and is open until Dec. 23, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.

Of the 142,218 eligible voters in Burlington, 39,217, or 27.6 per cent, voted in the 2022 election, including:

•              Advance voting locations (Oct. 15 and 18): 4,018 votes

•              Online voting (Oct. 11 to 20): 14,980 votes

•              Election Day, 24 voting locations (Oct. 24): 20,219 votes

 City Clerk Kevin Arjoon noted residents’ comments and suggestions are important and will be used to help the City plan and prepare for Burlington’s next municipal election in 2026. He asked residents to take the survey even if they did not vote.
