The focus of the Post Election Accessible Report evaluates the accessibility of the electoral services offered to all electors and candidates in the 2018 Municipal and School Board Election.
Under the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, the Municipal Clerk is legislatively responsible for conducting Municipal and School Board Elections and establishing policies and procedures to ensure that all electors have the opportunity to participate fully in the election. The Municipal Elections Act requires the Clerk to have regard for the needs of electors and candidates with disabilities and to ensure that all voting places are accessible to electors with disabilities. The Clerk is also required, within 90 days after a regular election, to prepare a report on the identification, removal, and prevention of barriers that affect electors and candidates with disabilities and make the report available to the public.
The Post Election Accessible Report outlines the actions taken regarding the identification, removal and prevention of barriers that affected electors and candidates with disabilities and how these actions impacted their voting experience.
