It seems residents of Waterloo have plenty of interest in the municipal election.

The city says over 2,500 people voted in the advanced polls between October 6 and October 13.

It marks a seven per cent increase over 2014 and a 21 per cent increase when you compare the numbers to the municipal election from 2010.

The advance poll at John M. Harper Branch Library was the busiest with over 900 people showing up to cast their ballots.

"It was important to make advance voting as easy and convenient as possible," Waterloo City Clerk, Olga Smith, said in a release.

"I think these numbers reflect our efforts and we are looking forward to this increase in voter turnout continuing on Election Day."

Election day is Monday, October 22.
