Voter turnout at Windsor advance polls tumbles

The City of Windsor says turnout at advanced polls is down 21 per cent from the 2014 municipal election.

Corporate Marketing and Communications Officer Mary Rodgers told 5,348 eligible voters cast a ballot in five advance polls between October 6 and October 13.

There are 144,680 people eligible to vote in Monday’s election in Windsor. It means, just 3.69 per cent of voters have cast a ballot already.

In 2014, 6,782 voted in six advanced polls.

Voter turnout was higher in Tecumseh which also released its numbers Tuesday.

By the end of the day Monday, 1,850 electors had voted or 10 per cent of all eligible voters.

Election day is Monday, October 22. The polls open at 10 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. will have hourly updates on-air at 96.7 FM, and 95.9 FM election night and all night long on the website and social media.
