Grace Kosch is the Municipal Clerk with the Township of Wellesley, she says they moved to online voting to improve turnout and voter accessibility.

"We have a lot of young working families, and they are busy, by the time the get home from work and do activities with their children it's a lot to go out and vote on certain days." said Kosch. 

Kosch says it appears residents are aware of the new voting method. 

She adds, they went to extensive lengths to get the message out, "We put it out on Facebook and Twitter we've presented to two senior club luncheons, we've been out to community centres and the arenas, we've probably put as much info out as we possibly can," 

Votes are accepted online until 7:59 p.m. on October 22nd when all polls close.
