2020 Post-Election Survey for Municipalities

Following the 2020 general municipal elections, the Ministry of Government surveyed municipalities and school boards regarding their election experiences.

The 2020 Post-Election Survey was open from November 23 to December 31, 2020. In total, 448 municipalities and 12 school divisions responded to the survey.

Key findings include:

  • The average of the voter turnout reported in 2020 was 45 per cent;
  • 76 per cent of survey respondents used advance polls in 2020; half of those respondents noted an increase in the number of voters at advance polls over 2016;
  • 32 per cent of respondents held advance polls for the first time in 2020;
  • 19 per cent of respondents used mail-in ballots; and
  • 32 per cent of votes counted were from advance voting (e.g. advance poll, mail-in ballot).
