Toronto Elections is extending its deadline for mail-in voting applications to 11:59 p.m. Friday.

The agency says it wants to give eligible voters more time to apply. The original deadline was 4:30 p.m. today.

Eligible voters must apply online or by calling 311.

The municipal election is on October 24th and advance voting runs from October 7th to 14th.

There are 31 candidates vying for the mayor's chair and 164 candidates running for a seat on council.
