Pickering City Clerk’s Official Statement on the Municipal Election

Pickering, ON, October 23, 2018 - The following is an official statement from Debbie Shields, City Clerk, City of Pickering.

“The City of Pickering’s voting period for the 2018 Municipal Elections commenced on Monday, October 15, 2018 at 10:00 am.  Last night, on the final day of the voting period, the City’s election service provider, Dominion Voting Systems, experienced a bandwidth problem at approximately 6:00 pm, which resulted in a 90-minute delay, affecting 51 Ontario municipalities, including Pickering. To compensate for the delay, the City extended the voting period for an additional two hours and closed voting at 10:00 pm.”

“Voter turnout was 29 per cent, which is within a 3 to 5 per cent range of the two previous elections.  Please note that at no time was the integrity of the system at risk of compromise, or in any way insecure.  As such, I am fully confident in our election results.”
