VOTE 2018The Municipality of Killarney will be implementing an alternate method of voting for the 2018 elections. In recent years the Municipality has been using vote by mail but for 2018 we will be implementing Internet and Telephone Voting for the 2018 Municipal Election in October, 2018.
This system replaces the traditional polling place method and eliminates the need for advance polls and voting proxies. It also improves voter access and increases voter participation. As the election draws closer we will be including more information about the voting process on this page. In Killarney the Mayor is elected at large, which means all eligible voters choose from the same mayoral candidates when voting. Councillors are elected to represent two wards, three Councillors Ward 1 and two Councillors Ward 2.
