Elections for municipal government in Ontario are held every four years on the fourth Monday of October. The next municipal election will be held Monday, October 22, 2018, with polls open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. The size of the Ajax Town council will remain the same for 2018, however the town loses one local councillor and gains one regional councillor, necessitating a reduction in the number of wards from four to three.
