2014 Election Results – Ward 17 Councillor

So the 2014 results are in.   We thought it would be interesting to look at the official results by different geographic areas.

In 2010, there were 1108 votes cast within the boundaries of the Heron Park Community Association from 2962 eligible voters — a voter turnout of 37.40%.  That was far less than the 52% voter turnout for our Ward.

This year our voter turnout has dropped even lower to 24.95% (assuming a similar number of eligible voters).

A little bit of work within our community to increase voter turnout for 2018 could result in Heron Park casting more ballots than Ottawa East… …and while it might be difficult, it would not be impossible to see Heron Park Voters cast more ballots than voters in Old Ottawa South!
