Anyway I slice it, I come up with the same list as 4 Change candidates.

Weird.

I'm glad I'm not of voting age yet, because I don't know who I'd vote for. Shepherd needs to leave. Don't get me wrong, she was a great mayor but hasn't accomplished very many key things. I don't think I would vote for Mr Gray either because his term in office seemed to be all about developing and building subdivisions everywhere. I might vote for one of the new guys if I knew that they change some things around town and accomplish things that Shepherd didn't.

I voted and am astounded by the turn out at the Parkinson Rec center today. It was a line out the front door, which you may think was no big deal, until you realize that line went to the left inside, and down two hallways to a smaller room. UNreal.

Anyone else see line ups like that?
July 15th was the BEST for Kelowna news in a long time. Counting down thirty days from the 15th.

What time were you there, Queen? We were at PRC around 11:30 and waited til 12 to get to the registration. When we left the lineup was out the door too. We went in the far door, as you said down two hallways and ended up at the front entrance foyer to vote. We were at the mall later which was also busy but not as much as PRC. Great to see!

Meh. All this talk about lineups discouraged me from walking 8 blocks.

Carmancat, we didn't get there til 2 pm or so, and the line up was out the door when we got there and when we left. It all went smoothly though, I think it's all in a person's head not to line up cuz it "takes too long". Geez, with instant everything these days our line up experience was under 30 minutes and that included using the pen.

Capt. A, say it ain't so! Or if you were for ForGreed, isok, there's always tv. :dyinglaughing:

I didn't see one person grumble about the line up - everyone was patient and seemed to be happy to see the big turnout, as was I. The fellow at the front said it had been like that since they opened at 8, and on Wednesday too. : )

I think we're in trouble here, so many councillors to vote for it is going to be a close race for several! That's ok as long as you voted you are entitled to complain and grumble, when your "best" choice didn't succeed.

In as much as this statement seems unpopular, if you don't know why your voting for who your voting for . . . DON"T VOTE!

It's like saying I don't like this cloudy day, so tomorrow I want a change . . . you get a snow storm.

The same dynamic that played out in the U.S. is at work this election; an uninformed motivation for change (including the youth vote), for the sake of change, can produce erroneous results.

I can only hope it doesn't play out this way this election.
