Your vote makes a difference. So do your ideas. Whether or not you cast a ballot in the last municipal election, we want to hear from you. Your insight will further our efforts to increase voter engagement and turnout in the 2016 election and beyond.

From March 2 - April 20, you can share your thoughts about:

  • engaging new and youth voters;
  • accessibility;
  • ways to cast your ballot; and
  • roles of participants in the electoral process.

Participate in the survey on Shape Your City (you must create an account to use Shape Your City)

  • Get creative and send us a photo or video
