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