Ontario Bencher Elections Approaching

Bencher elections are fast approaching, and voter turnout appears to remain low, reportedly at 12,567 votes out of a potential 40,000 as of April 28,2011. Voter turnout in the last Bencher election was only 33%. If you are supporting any candidates, please let us know! We are happy to hear about excellent candidates who can use our support and our votes.
The Law Society has published a voting guide with bios of all of the candidates. Voting closes at 5:00 p.m. EDT on April 29. The election will be conducted online through a secure website. Forty benchers will be elected – 20 from inside Toronto and 20 from outside Toronto. You can find more information about the voting process on the Law Society of Upper Canada website. We encourage all lawyers to participate in electing our Convocation representatives.
