Content

Our social media content aims to keep Ontarians informed about the electoral process in Ontario. This includes posts about voter registration, employment opportunities, voting opportunities, and information about the events we administer.

We follow accounts on Twitter that are relevant to our business. We retweet and share content from other accounts that we think our followers might find interesting. Follows, retweets or post sharing do not imply endorsements of any kind.

As a non-partisan office of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, we do not respond to questions or posts that are outside of our mandate or that take a stance on political issues or matters of public policy. We moderate our Facebook account to remove comments that are inappropriate, abusive or partisan, in order for our account to act as a non-partisan source of information about the electoral process in Ontario. Elections Ontario’s Social Media Terms of Use are available on our Facebook page.
