Monday, October 27, 2014 is the date that Brockville residents go to the polls to elect their Mayor, City Councillors and school board Trustees. By voting, you are not only exercising your democratic right, but you are also ensuring your support for those candidates who share your vision for your community and neighbourhood.
By voting for a candidate for Mayor and Councillor, you are helping to set the future direction of the City of Brockville. The City provides the day-to-day services you count on from fire and police service, to clean water and parks, to transit and public library. City Council decides how your property tax dollars are spent and establishes the level and range of municipal services available in your community. Voting for your school board Trustee is also important. Trustees develop and implement recommendations for educational programs, budgets, facilities and property issues, and policies and procedures that govern their Boards operation. That's why its important to vote.

As was used in the 2010 Municipal Election, voters in the 2014 Municipal Election will be using electronic voting (internet and telephone).
