Barrie votes: Municipal election 2022

For the first time since 2010, Barrie residents will elect a new mayor

There was something missing during this municipal election in Barrie.

For the first time since 2010, Jeff Lehman’s name was not on the ballot for mayor. In February, Lehman announced he would not seek re-election as mayor for a fourth term. Instead, he ran for the provincial Liberals in the riding of Barrie-Springwater-Oro-Medonte. He lost the June election to Conservative incumbent Doug Downey by just 609 votes.

Lehman was first elected to city council in 2006, representing the downtown in Ward 2.

Those running for mayor include Ward 4 city councillor Barry Ward, Ward 10 city councillor Mike McCann, former MP and city councillor Alex Nuttall, Gerry Marshall, a former Warden of Simcoe County and former Mayor of Penetanguishene. Andrew Gordon, Weldon Hachey and Rob Haverson are also vying to be Barrie’s next mayor.

Barrie will also be electing at least four new city councillors.

Ward 5 councillor Robert Thomson and Ward 7 councillor Gary Harvey were both acclaimed.

This is the first time residents have been able to vote in a municipal election simply by casting a ballot over the phone or on the internet.

Voting began on Friday, October 14 and will close at 8 p.m. on Monday, October 24.

As of Friday at 4:30 p.m, city officials said voter turnout was 15.08% or 15,586 votes out of approximately 103,000 eligible voters.

The election results will be available at around 9:30 p.m. on Monday.

Check back to Barrie 360.com for the results, as well as on our social and Facebook channels.
