High pressure has settled into Ontario, giving residents sunny skies and above seasonal temperatures this week.
While conditions are ideal, will the weather impact how and if Ontarians vote?
Elections Ontario currently does not collect data on the impact of weather and voters. Officials say that factors such as the time of year, candidates' platforms and general public interest can impact voter turnout making it difficult to collect specifc data.
Political observers however, say that bad weather can actually swing voter turnout from five to ten percent. Distance can be another factor.
Municipal elections in Ontario used to be held in November and have since been moved to October. An earlier voting day decreases the chance of inclement weather and also eliminates the possibility of vandalism to election signs on Halloween.
