The race here in St. John's has not been terribly exciting. I am looking forward to Ron Ellsworth's return to City Hall as Deputy Mayor and Mayor O'Keefe's re-election as Mayor. The race I am watching with the most interest is Ward Four. Bernie Davis is hoping the third time is the charm. The at-large race could produce some surprises as well, although I expect all three incumbents to be re-elected.
The deadline to mail in your ballot has passed. Voters can drop their ballots off at the drop box in front of City Hall or at the satellite drop-off located in each ward.
There are three opportunities to ensure your ballot is received and counted on election day:
- Prior to, and including election day, return envelopes can be dropped off in the designated ‘mail box’ outside the first floor of City Hall, anytime;
- On election day, return envelopes can be deposited at either of the five satellite drop-off centres from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.;
- If a voter did not receive a vote by mail kit, they can, upon presentation of required documentation at a satellite drop-off centre, receive a vote by mail kit on election day. The vote by mail kit can be completed on site and deposited into a ballot box at the satellite drop-off centre.
