Yes Kingston is a non-partisan group whose goal is to inform the public about the benefits of Ranked Ballots.
On October 22, 2018, 63% of Kingstonians cast their vote YES in favour of a Ranked Ballot when they head back to the polls in four years. Our city has become the first in Ontario where the people chose to use a ranked ballot through a city-wide referendum.
Then on December 18th, 2018, Kingston city council voted overwhelmingly to respect the results of the referendum and initiate the process to implement ranked ballots for the 2022 election.
Now, at the halfway point between the referendum and the upcoming election, we need to remind council of implementing this important initiative that the people of Kingston voted for.
The deadline for Council to pass the by-law to implement ranked ballots for the 2022 election is coming up: May 1, 2021.
A packed house filled The Spire on October 2nd for our Ranked Ballots info session and Sarah Harmer Concert.
