Hello,

If I am not wrong ''a ballot'' means ''a vote''
In this case, can we say something like that :
-''the city council will organize a ballot on that law to see what's the opinion of its inhabitants''

What's the correct form to say that :
- to organize a ballot
- to do a ballot
- to hold a ballot

The day of the vote, inhabitants will ''give their ballot'' or ''cast their ballot'' ... ????


Many thanks
Piotr

    If they are just getting the opinion of the people, it might be a poll, or some market research. To me, ballot seems to imply a binding vote (ie if they vote in favour it definitely happens).
