This year Lincoln introduced Internet Voting as an option for residents. A response of 14% of total eligible voters chose this method to cast their ballot. The addition of this option enabled voters to cast their ballot at their convenience, creating an accessible channel to vote, and accessing a portion of the voters who may not have typically voted in the past.

The four-year term of office for elected representatives is officially recognized under the Municipal Elections Act to begin on Dec. 1, 2018, through to Nov. 14, 2022. The first meeting (inaugural) of the newly elected Town of Lincoln Council will be held on Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, in Council Chambers where members of the Town of Lincoln Council will be officially sworn in.

Council meeting schedules, agendas and minutes are always available online.
