Issue 637 Volume 3 Number 137
It’s Monday, October 24, 2022 and we'll be doing our civic duty today, which means being fairly sure who we will mark an ‘X’ against for mayor, then looking at the list of ward candidates and thinking, ‘Wait, who are all these people?’ And school board trustee?

If you are already registered to vote, you should have had a voters card sent to you. But you can still vote even if you don't have it. You don't even need to have ID, but it will make things faster.
If you are not registered, you can do so at the polling place.
Ottawa’s City Clerk says that the results will be made official on Friday. That doesn't mean we won't know who won mayor and council this evening – unofficial results are expected around 11 pm.
