Hamiltonians will be able to vote by mail in the October municipal election after the City of Hamilton added the option in response to the COVID pandemic.
The City says people will be able to request mail ballots using an online form between September 1st and 22nd using an online form on the City of Hamilton website.
All mail ballots must arrive at City Hall by election day, October 22, to be counted.
The mail ballot packages will include a prepaid postage return envelope.
People can also drop their ballots at City Hall.

It’s about time. Many seniors and disabled people without transportation (such as myself) have not been able to get to polling stations and lost their opportunity to vote. This will make things easier, at least for those of us who have computers.
