A date has been set for the Ward 7 by-election.

It was originally scheduled to take place on April 27th, 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19. It will now be held Monday, October 5th, 2020.

“Our primary concern is the safety of residents, voters in Ward 7, candidates and election workers,” said City Clerk Valerie Critchley. “It takes a large team of people and a large amount of coordination to put any election together, and one with COVID-19 considerations makes it even more difficult, but over the coming weeks we will ensure all necessary precautions and protocols are put in place and communicated to the community.”

Advanced voting will be held on Tuesday, September 29th; Wednesday, September 30th; Thursday, October 1st; and Saturday, October 3rd, 2020.

Voting will be in person and will take place at the WFCU Centre with special pandemic protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of residents, voters in Ward 7, candidates and election workers. The City Clerk is working closely with the City of Windsor Health & Safety Department and the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit to ensure that all public health regulations are adhered to and all necessary safety precautions are in place.

As the nomination period ended on Friday, March 13th, 2020, there will be no consideration given to new candidates.
