I had never really thought about how frustrating it would be to have an election going on and not be able to be a part of it before.
Like most of you, I have yet to receive my voting kit. It is expected to arrive at the remaining doorsteps before Tuesday. If you are still without by Tuesday, you may visit Town Hall to secure new credentials. Town staff are on hand there to assist.
In the meantime I will be watching my own mailbox with eager anticipation. I look forward to seeing you at the Tecumseh Legion on Monday night beginning at 7pm for the Meet the Candidates night.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ANDREW DOWIE TO HOLD VOTER INFORMATION TOWN HALL
October 14, 2014 (Tecumseh, ON) - Andrew Dowie, Tecumseh Council candidate for Ward 1, invites members of the public to attend a Voter Information Town Hall to learn about Tecumseh's new voting process. The Town Hall will be held at 12222 Tecumseh Road East beginning at 7:30pm on Thursday, October 16th, across from Ste. Anne's Church.
Dowie has just reached a major milestone of his campaign, having now knocked on every accessible residence's door in Ward 1. Throughout the election, Dowie has noted continuing uncertainty with respect to the voting procedure and minimal knowledge that voting has changed to a telephone or internet-based system for this election.
"Making sure residents are connected to their local government is a key priority of my campaign. I look forward to helping my fellow Tecumseh residents become as comfortable as possible with the new voting process," says Dowie.
A special invite is extended to residents of Plaza East and Place Tecumseh apartments. Mr. Dowie was declined access by property management during his visit on the afternoon of Saturday, October 11th, 2014, contrary to Section 28 of the Residential Tenancies Act which allows for access to municipal election candidates for the purpose of canvassing. We are attempting to work with the property management company to obtain access to speak with voters.
