Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives might have won an even larger majority government than the first time, but a large majority of Ontarians decided to take a pass on going to the polls.
Elections Ontario says just about 43.5% of eligible voters cast a ballot resulting in the lowest turnout in history.
That’s a 14% drop from the 2018 election while the previous turnout low was 48% in 2011 when Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals won a minority.
A strategist in the Prime Minister’s Office believes it was due to a lack of engagement between politicians and voters.
”I find that voters didn’t understand what they were voting for,” said Vandana Kattar.
”I think more so than negative politics, people don’t want to hear what the other guy isn’t going to do.  They want to hear what you are going to do. 
And that goes back to not getting your message out and not sharing it.”
