Against the backdrop of relatively low turnout rates and the high number of municipal council members elected by acclamation, the Chief Electoral Officer would like to remind all concerned that getting involved in the affairs of your municipality is a way to participate in the decisions that shape the community. And one of the high points in municipal life is, of course, the election of the municipal council.
