Advance Voting Days starts today.

Post by stuphoto »

If you will be out of town on election day, and have the chance to vote early it looks like the Advanced Polls are open starting today.

My voting card lists them as the following days.
Sat - Sun, April 29 - 30. 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
Wed - Sat, May 3 - 6. 8:00 am - 8:00 pm.

Your regular station may not be open until election day, so you may want to look at your voting card for the best location.

Just came back from a somewhat deserted advanced voting station in Lake View Heights (Super Eight). :135:
The nice lady minding the door said things had quieted down significantly from the morning.

Hopefully we have a good turnout for 2017.

I popped in to vote today, was over 200 people in line. Decided to try again later =D

Good to see people itching to vote.



No mater what your flavor is, go vote, get your say in or forever hold your peace !

2013 turnout was 57.1% but in the Okanagan it dipped below 50%. we need to do better.

Starting tomorrow you can cast your Vote into the ballot box, for the candidate/party of your Choice.
Advance Polling start Apr 29, 2017 at 8am around the Province, everyone (those on the voters list) should have received voting card in the the mail. With the information on locations, dates & time.

So go Vote

Makes sense since part of downtown Kelowna is in that riding

Voted today in Lumby.
Quiet when we were there, but people there indicated a slow steady turnout.

Starting a new topic to see how many voted in the advance polls.

The government makes it easier and easier for people to vote but some people are never satisfied. Ridiculous!

Agreed. Used to be only voting day, then advance poll with a reason, now multiple places prior to general voting day. No line up for me today.

I was going to vote in Rock Creek today, and their advanced poll is closed this weekend but open next week.
So I will vote in Osoyoos tomorrow.

Even more ridiculous to complain when they can't get the locations right in the first place.

My apologies.

I did not see that the OKM hall had two dates.
