As few as 10 votes may determine who wins or loses a Council seat

In 2018, there's a big increase in the number of candidates to 24. In previous three elections, each voter supported 4.7 to 5.7 candidates on average.

Be smart when voting for Niagara-on-the-Lake Council. It’s not only who you support, but also how many of the 24 candidates you select on the ballot. The difference between winning or losing a Council seat could be as little as 10 votes. Although you can vote for as many as 8 candidates, it is more effective to limit the number of candidates you support.
