First Chance To Cast Your Ballot At Barrie Farmer’s Market

Eligible Residents Can Vote At City Hall Starting at 9:00 Saturday Morning

Early voting begins Saturday morning, and you can grab some fresh veggies while you’re at it.

Barrie residents get a first crack at voting in the municipal election during the Barrie Farmer’s Market. The nearby City Hall Rotunda will be host to the ballot boxes in a City of Barrie effort to make voting easier.

Voting at the Rotunda begins at 9:00, and runs until 2:00. Have a peek at the official list of acceptable identification you’d need to bring in order to vote.

The City has also taken the wraps off a Voting Bus, a mobile ballot box making scheduled stops around Barrie.
