Not only was there an increase in advance voting for this provincial election over 2018, there is word from Elections Ontario that significantly more mail-in ballots have been send out to voters over last time.
Voting kits have been mailed out to just over 126,000 eligible residents who sent in requests before last week’s deadline.
This number represents a sharp increase from 2018, when a little more than 15,000 mail in ballots were sent out.
And while advance voting ended on Saturday evening with one-million voters taking part, you may still cast a ballot at a returning office until Wednesday evening ahead of election day on Thursday.
If you’re still undecided with two days to go, Anthony Quinn of CARP – A New Vision of Aging, told guest host Jane Brown on Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back which of the parties are most in line with the CARP 5 election issues.
“I would say that the three opposition parties are all pretty much in line and there are questions from the PCs,” Quinn explained, “But I’m looking forward to hopefully the polls being a little wrong. I get a kick out of it when the pollsters are wrong and and the electorate does something a little different and I’m hoping everyone will get out and vote on these issues.”
The CARP 5 issues are:
Fund better home care
Transform long term care
Drastically cut wait times
Make vaccines more accessible
Fund fitness for seniors.
