2010 Manitoba Municipal Election Watch



Manitoba's municipal elections take place Wednesday, October 27, 2010.

As more media stories and election websites come about, I hope to link to them from here and make it a decent reference site for 2010. It will likely get revamped a couple of times so bear with me if it's a bit awkward looking right now.

My focus will be on Manitoba races but Toronto's is going to be fun to watch as well !
