Toronto's 2018 municipal election is now finished. During the campaign, RaBIT worked to ensure that the mayor and city council we elected on October 22nd understood the benefits of ranked ballots and were committed to using them for the 2022 election. 

One of the ways we did this was by are asking all candidates for mayor and for city council to take the following Candidate Pledge:

As a candidate in the 2018 Toronto election, I pledge that, if elected, I will support, advance, and vote in favour of those actions required for ranked ballots to be used in the 2022 Toronto elections.

As of 22 October, the following 98 candidates took the Candidate Pledge. Moreover, 14 of these candidates (13 council candidates and 1 mayoral candidate) were elected. This means that a majority of Toronto City Council has pledged to implement a ranked ballot for the 2022 Toronto election! 

Below you will also find links to each race for more detail. If you'd like more information about our Candidate Pledge campaign, please click here.
