Elections Ontario Outreach for Upcoming Provincial General Election
Elections Ontario is conducting outreach to community organizations and associations who work with Ontarians who have accessibility needs and has asked the agency to share the below and attached information.
With the provincial general election scheduled for June 2, they want to make sure our network knows about the tools and services available to them that make voting easy and accessible for all electors.
Please find attached a zip folder with the following:
- A letter from the Chief Electoral Officer
- Voting in Ontario brochure
- Accessible Voting handout
We ask that you please distribute these to your network electronically or print copies to hand out. If you require bulk copies, you may place an order on Elections Ontario’s website.
We appreciate your partnership in reducing barriers to voting this election! Please get in touch with any questions to:
