Get to know who is running for council in your ward, and who is running for mayor of the City of London.

London’s municipal election will be held Oct. 24, with advanced polling being held at Fanshawe College on Oct. 11. The election includes a vote for London’s mayor, London’s city council, and Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) trustees. All students with a London address are eligible to vote in the upcoming election, so we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of every candidate running for office, not including trustees.

Let’s start with the mayoral candidates. There are no incumbent candidates running, however, Josh Morgan is a current City Councillor and acting Deputy Mayor of the City of London.

When it comes to City Council, London has 14 Wards with multiple candidates running in each individual ward. Fanshawe students will most likely be voting in either Ward 3 (the ward which includes the Fanshawe campus), or Ward 13 (the ward which includes most of London’s downtown). A helpful map on the City of London website will help determine which ward you should vote in, based on your London address.
