As Ontario's non-partisan agency that organizes and conducts the province's general elections and by-elections, Elections Ontario's social media mandate is to be a trusted source of election information for the voters of Ontario. On our social media channels, we will engage in conversation, share links, interesting facts and recruitment information and answer questions related to the electoral process.
We are available during our active hours to answer questions related to the electoral process and how, where and when to vote during the provincial election. We will respond to queries posed via social media in a reasonable timeframe during the posted active hours. It's all part of our commitment to make voting easy.
To respect and assist others, contributors are also asked to be concise and to use plain language.
