Internet voting has caught on this municipal election in Peterborough like never before, with more and more people on social media reporting they are registering their votes online and the City reporting higher numbers than past years. About 3,900 people voted online in the 2010 municipal election, and that number is expected to be significantly higher this election—nearly 500 people alone voted online on the first day online voting began here October 14th.

The online voting process is seamless, and generally takes no more than 5 minutes. Go to Peterborough.ca/vote to vote! Check out some tweets below about people that have voted online and watch a great "How to" video from local studio Whitebulb Animation...
