Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette also questioned MPAC spokesperson Greg Baxter on the voter's list foul-up created during last year's municipal election. MPAC is responsible for preparing a preliminary enumeration list for municipal clerks, but last year, thousands of voters in Town were forced to declare themselves Canadian citizens-- even though some had voted in this community for more than 30 years-- because MPAC could not confirm their nationality. Baxter said MPAC is working on this matter with municipal clerks and expects improvement by the next election. He said part of the problem is attributed to the low return rate (40 per cent) of occupancy and municipal enumeration forms that MPAC sent to all properties. Residents are currently not legally required to send the information back, but that may be reviewed in the future, Baxter said.
