Elections information session today

Elections information session today

Non-partisan event in Kelowna this afternoon is the first of two, with another set for May 7.

There is a free non-partisan BC Elections Information Session and Discussion Forum this afternoon in Kelowna.

The session will start at 2 p.m. and is scheduled for two hours at 1668 Ellis St. in Kelowna.

It’s the first of two sessions with the second one to take place May 7.

“The objective is to encourage community members that are eligible to vote to participate in democracy in an informed manner. We often see a disconnect, especially with the younger generation, when it comes to voting – this event’s objective is to address this issue. We want to keep this event very casual,” stated organizers.

The events will cover these topics:

-What riding you’re in their candidates

-Party policies and leaders

-Where and how to vote

-How to register and vote in advance

-What issues are on the table

After the covered topics, the floor will be open for questioning.
