Nomination packages are still available for District of West Kelowna civic election candidates until Friday, Oct. 10, at the district hall 2760 Cameron Rd.

Potential candidates have had since Aug. 22 to be nominated to run in the Nov. 15 civic election.

West Kelowna residents will go to the polls to vote for one mayor, six councilors and one school trustee.

“We have the packages ready for anyone who is considering running for office and we are available to answer any questions they may have,” says Tracey Batten, West Kelowna’s Chief Electoral Officer.

“The packages include the documents required for nomination but also key information including important dates, links to educational information and Council’s Strategic Priorities and Annual Report.”

“The District does not require a nomination deposit, however, West Kelowna candidates are required to have 25 qualified nominators sign their nomination.”

West Kelowna’s Election Office has also created a webpage with a wealth of information for candidates and voters districtofwestkelowna.ca under Mayor and Council/Election 2014, includes a frequently asked questions section and provides information on mail-in ballots and even past election results.
