Vaughan's city council, battered by a slew of post-campaign audits, is being asked to consider significant changes in how elections there are run – including prohibiting the use of money raised in previous campaigns and requiring candidates to disclose their donor lists before election day.

Some other recommendations in the task force's report:

Provide a municipal tax rebate for individual political donations.

Create a way to vote securely by Internet.

Use social media to promote the 2010 elections among young voters.

Name city wards by their popular names, such as Kleinburg/Maple, instead of bland numbers.
