May 27, 2022
Briefs & Submissions

A letter to Elections Ontario from representatives of the Ontario Universities and Colleges Coalition (OUCC), representing over 435,000 faculty, staff, and students from every public post-secondary institution in Ontario.

“With the Ontario election fast approaching on June 2, 2022, students and campus workers want to highlight the need for on-campus polling stations. There are major documented successes with on-campus polling stations in both the 2015 and 2019 Federal elections cycles, with a 60% increase in voter turnout attributed to the on-campus polling stations between the two elections. It is no secret that students and campus workers are active voters and access to on-campus voting provides for higher participation among these groups.”
