Dryden residents will be able to cast their votes for the upcoming municipal elections tomorrow.

By now, residents should have received their voter information card in the mail.  If anyone did not receive one, they need to come down to City Hall at 30 Van Horne Avenue, or call 223-1126 or 223-1147 for assistance in getting their voters package.

All voting will be online or by phone, and voting will start tomorrow at 10 a.m., before closing at 8 p.m. on October 22. In previous years, the city used a vote-by-mail system. City Clerk Debra Kincaid explained why staff made the change to telephone and internet voting.

“It’s outdated and fairly expensive, with return mail as well as outgoing mail. It’s 2018, and it’s been done everywhere else, so we’re looking forward to trying out the new methods here in Dryden.”

For residents who don’t have access to internet or a phone, internet voting kiosks will be set up at various locations in the city so residents are able to cast their vote. Locations include City Hall, the Dryden Public Library, the Dryden Memorial Arena, the Go-Getters Senior Centre, and a variety of housing complexes throughout the city.

Voting in Sioux Lookout opens on Saturday at 10 a.m. Voting in Kenora opened on Tuesday.
