Today is the last day to vote in the 2018 municipal election. According to the town Facebook page, 32 per cent of those eligible have cast their votes as of Sunday (Oct. 21) at 4:30 p.m.

In Collingwood, voting is done by phone or online, however town election staff have set up four polling stations at the library for anyone who would like help or needs access to a computer to vote.

The help centre is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and is located in the Free Schools Room at the Collingwood Public Library.

Polls close today at 8 p.m., but anyone in line at the help centre by 8 p.m. will still be able to vote.

The results will be posted once all the votes have been placed and tallied. The town will be posting the results on a screen in the Community B and C rooms on the third floor of the library.

CollingwoodToday will be providing coverage of the election results on our site.

Collingwood residents can vote for one candidate for mayor and one for deputy mayor. You may vote for up to seven councillor candidates, and one school board trustee candidate.

To vote online, click here or call 1-866-757-8302. You will need your voter information letter, which includes your voter ID and pin number.

If you did not receive a voter information letter, go to the voter help centre today before 8 p.m.

Alternatively, you can register online here, and you will receive an email with your voter information.
