  • Oct. 21, 2014 3:00 p.m.

The candidates have been confirmed for the Nov. 15 civic election race in the Regional District of Central Okanagan West Electoral Area.

Vying for the electoral seat for a now four-year term will be:

Wayne Carson

Marsali MacIver

Eric Von Krosigk

In addition to general voting on Nov. 15, advance polls will be open from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 5, and Wednesday Nov. 12, at the Killiney Beach Community Hall and for the first time at the first floor boardroom of the Westbank First Nation office, 301-515 Highway 97 South.

Voters in Central Okanagan West Electoral Area should visit the election section on the regional district website (regionaldistrict.com/elections) before they head to the polls.  It explains where they can vote and what the qualifications are required for voting.

It’s also important to note that qualified electors living on Westbank First Nation Reserves #9 and #10 are eligible to vote in the Central Okanagan West Electoral Area director election.

Some people may choose to vote by mail ballot.   The same voting qualifications apply and application forms must be completed and submitted to the Chief Election Officer as soon as possible in order to allow enough time to receive and return completed mail ballot packages.  Mail ballots must be received before the close of voting at 8:00 pm on Saturday, Nov. 15.  Those received after that time will not be eligible and will not be included in the voting results.

Incumbent candidate Patty Hanson was unopposed at the close of the nomination period for the Central Okanagan East Electoral Area Director position and will return to represent the area for a four-year term.
