Toronto has an election coming up.

While you may dread the idea of heading to the polls again this year, your vote matters and is really important when it comes to shaping your daily life.

Why? Because your municipal government is responsible for building the infrastructure and providing many of the services you rely on daily. 

From how your local roads are designed to what housing and transit options you have to the size of your property tax bill, the choices your mayor and city councillors make directly affect you — in some cases, more so than your representatives at the provincial or federal levels.

But your local government can also be, well, opaque at times.

So ahead of the Oct. 24 vote, CBC Toronto will do its best to answer any questions you have about how municipal government works and how its policies affect you. 

Are you worried about community safety? The cost of housing or rent affordability? Do you want to see more bike lanes on city streets, less traffic or improved public transit options? What about the city's approach to homelessness, economic development and the COVID-19 pandemic?
