Votes cast at advance polls

Although the municipal election is not until Saturday, some have already cast their ballots for council and school trustee candidates.

Although the municipal election is still a couple of days away, some Summerlanders have already cast their ballots for council and school trustee candidates.

Advance polls were held on Nov. 9 and Nov. 16 at municipal hall.

At the Nov. 9 poll, 383 ballots were cast. The figures for the Nov. 16 advance voting were not known by press time.

Results of the advance polls may not be released until all voting has been completed.

Municipal clerk Maureen Fugeta said the numbers at the advance polls are comparable to the 2008 election when 684 people attended two days of advance polling.

The election will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Giant’s Head School and Summerland Secondary School.

The results of the election will be presented at municipal hall at 8:15 that evening. The presentation of the results is open to the public.

The official results will also be available online as soon as the votes have been tallied on Saturday evening.
