Issues began cropping up about an hour before polls closed, and it soon became evident that all communities in Simcoe County that relied on Internet or phone voting were having problems.
Due to the continued Province wide technical challenges pertaining to on-line and telephone voting, please be advised that telephone and on-line voting will be available until 8pm tomorrow evening (October 23rd.)

- Oro Medonte
Meanwhile, Barrie, Orillia, Essa Township, Midland, New Tecumseth, Severn, Tay, and Tiny all relied on more traditional methods of voting, and were expecting to announce results shortly after polls closed at 8:00pm
