Advance voting for mayor, councillor
Aug 24, 2013 / 9:29 am
Elections Penticton is offering advance voting opportunities next week for any eligible voters.
A by-election is being held to elect one mayor and one councillor for the remainder of the current term. Advance voting will take place at Penticton City Hall, 171 Main St., on Wednesday, Aug. 28 and Thursday, Aug. 29 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. each day.
In the past, advance voting was reserved only for citizens who were unable to vote on general voting day; however, the Local Government Act was changed prior to 2011 to allow all citizens to vote during advance polls should they choose.
The persons nominated as mayoral candidates who will be listed on the ballot are:
• Brian Henningson
• Garry Litke
• Vic Powell
The persons nominated as councillor candidates who will be listed on the ballot are:
• Kevin Andrews
• Patrick Buchanan
• Lynn Kelsey
• Andre Martin
• Katie Robinson
General voting day is Saturday, Sept. 7 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-In Centre, 2965 South Main St.

The person must complete the application form including your date of birth or the last six digits of your social insurance number and provide two pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) to prove both residency and identity. Picture identification is not necessary.
