Summer Byelection to Replace John Tory

Toronto residents will be voting for a new mayor on June 26th.

The city clerk, John D. Elvidge, says council must first, next month, declare the mayor’s office vacant and pass a bylaw that requires the byelection.

Under different circumstances, the city would not generally fix dates ahead of council passing a bylaw, but in this case the city felt it was in the best interests to  announce the dates as soon as possible

Once council gives the go-ahead, nominations would open on April 3 and close May 12.

Advance voting would take place June 8 to 13, with voting day on June 26.

John Tory resigned last week after admitting to having an inappropriate relationship with a former staff member.

Deputy Mayor Jennifer McKelvie has taken on some of Tory’s duties but has already said she is not planning to run in the byelection.
