Information for Voters

 

Why Vote

The community is shaped by the outcome of an election. Every Canadian citizen has the right to vote. It is how Canadians choose which leaders represent them. Voting is a responsibility that all Canadians should exercise. Voting connects citizens with the political process and with each other. When you take part in an election and express your view, you make democracy work.

In the next municipal and school board elections in Kirkland Lake, eligible citizens will vote to elect their Mayor, Councillors and School Board Trustees.

Voting for a Mayor and Councillors gives you a say in the direction the Town of Kirkland Lake will take. This includes changes and additions to services that impact the people of Kirkland Lake daily, such as infrastructure, parks, recreation programs, by-law services, and more.

School Board Trustees are elected to make decisions on budgets and facilities in your school system.
