Election Day is October 22!
Not sure if you're on the voter's list? Wondering about how Ranked Ballots work? You've come to the right place.
This election, London will be the first government in Canada to use a system other than First-Past-The-Post. Since the winning candidate needs to ultimately obtain more than 50% of the vote, Ranked Choice Voting (or Ranked Ballots), is often thought to be more democratic and representative of the community's desires.

Here's a link to the City's information with what your ballot will look like and some answers to some Frequently Asked Questions:
What do you need in order to vote?
A person is entitled to be an elector at an election held in a local municipality if, on voting day, he or she,
(a) resides in the local municipality or is the owner or tenant of land there, or is the spouse of such owner or tenant;
(b) is a Canadian citizen;
(c) is at least 18 years old; and
(d) is not prohibited from voting under subsection (3) or otherwise by law.
