There are 102 candidates registered to run in Toronto's mayoral byelection.

With the registration deadline now passed, a total of 102 candidates are running in Toronto’s mayoral byelection.

Nominations closed at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 12, and candidates were registering up until the last minute at Toronto City Hall.

The mayoral byelection will be held on Monday, June 26.

Candidates who registered to run must paid a mandatory $200 fee and provided at least 25 signed endorsements.

Now that the nomination deadline has passed, previously registered candidates can no longer withdraw from the race.

On Monday, May 15 – the last day for Toronto’s City Clerk to certify candidate nomination papers – the voters’ list and other essential information such as ward maps and voting locations will also become available to candidates.

This year’s June 26 byelection, which is estimated to cost the City of Toronto $13 million, will be performed in a similar manner to the 2022 municipal election which cost $14.5 million.

Now that nominations have closed, the next step of the mayoral campaign will see candidates be allowed to put election signs starting on June 1.

Advance voting begins on Thursday, June 8, and will be available to eligible voters until Tuesday, June 13.

Voters will also be provided with the option to vote by mail if they are unable to vote in-person on election day, Monday, June 26.
