A commitment for candidates
Let's make this election about the issues.
The Better Ballot Campaign is a way for everyone involved in the election process – candidates and voters – to focus on what matters: the issues. We are asking Guelph candidates and voters to take our pledge and reject all personal attacks during the 2018 municipal election, including any campaigning done in person, on paper and/or on screen. In other words, let’s play fair and focus on having better conversations.
