The all-candidates council forum takes place at the community centre on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. The forum will feature candidates for mayor, council and Area B director.

The one-on-one forum takes place at the community centre on Saturday, Oct. 25. This forum will give voters a chance to sit down with each candidate for a bit of one-on-one time.

The all-candidates school board forum takes place at the seniors centre on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. The forum will feature all candidates for the Revelstoke board of education.

The election takes place on Saturday, Nov. 15. Advance voting takes place on Nov. 5 and Nov. 12.
