Voters in Penetanguishene will see a change to their ballot in the next municipal election.
At its Feb. 22 meeting, council voted to abolish the town’s two electoral wards and move to an at-large system for 2018. This means the mayor, deputy mayor and the remaining seven members of council will be elected by all voters.
