Voter turnout in Monday's municipal election was slightly lower than in the 2003 election. The percentage of eligible voters who voted this year was 31.6 per cent, compared to 34.4 per cent three years ago. Acton had the highest turnout at 35.3 per cent. Ironically, Acton's local and regional councillors were acclaimed, and the community came out to vote only for school board trustee and the mayor and region chair races. The percentage was 29.39 per cent in Ward 2 and 31.98 per cent in Ward 3. These numbers were on par with those recorded in the 2003 election. The biggest drop occurred in Ward 4-- despite active councillor and trustee campaigns-- where the percentage of the voter turnout slipped from 34 per cent in 2003 to only 30.1 per cent.
