In the City of Kawartha Lakes, voting has been extended from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. due to an influx of online voters.

“Due to the volume of voters casting their electronic ballots at this time, the system is running slower than expected.”

The City of Kawartha Lakes says electors who have already voted can confirm if their vote has been successfully cast by attempting to vote a second time using their Voter ID and PIN numbers on their Voting PIN Letters. The voting system will notify you if you have successfully cast your ballot or not.
