“Voters in two electoral areas should determine well before they head to the polls, where they can vote. 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 and Zone 2 School Trustee elections. You can find information on who can vote, where to vote and when to vote by following the Elections Information link on the Regional District website, regionaldistrict.com/elections,” said communications officer Bruce Smith.

Some people may choose to vote by mail ballot. The same voting qualifications apply and the application form 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 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20. Those received after that time will not be eligible and will not be included in the voting results.
