On Monday, October 22, 2018, London will become the first municipality in Canada to vote using Ranked Choice Voting.
Every municipality in Ontario was given the option to choose Ranked Choice Voting for the upcoming 2018 Municipal Elections by means of the Municipal Elections Modernization Act, 2016.
London's Elections Office sought online public input for several months and held four public information/engagement sessions across the city in early 2017. The feedback received was presented to Council, who ultimately made the decision to move forward in 2018 using Ranked Choice Voting.
Ranked Choice Voting was passed at the May 1, 2017 Council meeting.
