We're almost there!
On October 22, 2018, 63% of Kingston voters cast their vote YES in favour of using a Ranked Ballot in Kingston's elections. Along with Cambridge, our city became the first in Ontario where the people chose to use a ranked ballot through a city-wide referendum.
Unfortunately, with one line buried deep in legislation (Bill 218), Doug Ford and his cronies banned the use of ranked ballots in Ontario.
After nearly 300 Kingstonians signed a petition urging action, Kingston City Council passed a motion to reaffirm our city's commitment to Ranked Ballots and formally denounce the provincial government's attack on local democracy.
Doug Ford won't be Premier forever. When the government changes, Bill 218 can be repealed, and we will be back on track to become a Ranked Ballot city.
