City of Kelowna: Nearly 4,000 people have already voted in Kelowna with general election day for the 2014 civic election this Saturday.

The second advance polling day for the City of Kelowna election resulted in 2,353 votes cast by the time the polls closed at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

With 1,540 votes cast on Nov. 5, a total of 3,893 electors have come out to vote so far.

Residents have two more days of advance voting, today at city hall and Okanagan College, and Friday at City Hall and Parkinson Recreation Centre.

The advance polls will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The city hall polling station features a voter assist terminal, which provides voters who may have difficulty marking a ballot the ability to do so privately and independently.
