City seeks community feedback on municipal voter experience

HAMILTON, ON – Starting today, ahead of the 2022 Municipal Election, the City of Hamilton invites the community to participate in a voter experience survey to understand how it can better address barriers to voting across Hamilton.

Survey feedback will allow the City to benchmark what processes need to be enhanced to support any communication and outreach to eligible voters, ensuring the upcoming election is fair and accessible to all voters.

The online survey takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete and will be running from November 1 to 29, 2021.

Community members can take the survey online via or by visiting one of the City’s Municipal Service Centres or branches of the Hamilton Public Library to complete a survey in person.

In addition to the survey, residents are also welcome to suggest polling station locations in the city.

“Ensuring all eligible voters are engaged and informed for the 2022 Municipal Election is at the forefront of our planning for the next election. By providing feedback on previous voter experience, including challenges and barriers they have faced, respondents will enable us to ensure that the upcoming election meets the principles of the Municipal Elections Act, including ensuring accessibility. We encourage all voters to participate in the survey, so we can better understand how to improve their voting experience.” - Aine Leadbetter, Manager, Elections and Print & Mail
