Council confirms mail-in voting for 2014 municipal election

by Patrick Raftis

MAPLETON - Local residents will again vote by mail in the 2014 municipal election, council here has confirmed.

Council passed a bylaw on Jan. 14 to authorize voting by mail for the 2014 municipal election, entering an agreement with DataFix to provide vote-by-mail services, and an agreement with Dominion Voting Systems to tabulate the vote-by-mail ballots.

Mapleton used mail-in ballots in the last municipal election in 2010.

“It certainly worked well in the last election. We had positive feedback on the process in terms of privacy and that sort of thing,” said CAO Patty Sinnamon.

She noted there were some voter list problems regarding students who were living away from home last time around and solutions are in the works to deal with that issue.

Although the mail-in option will be in place, the bylaw also calls for a ballot return station to be established at the municipal administration centre for electors who prefer to deliver their ballots directly.
