The Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce will be providing three opportunities for residents to ask questions of candidates for municipal office.

The chamber is holding a one-on-one forum with council candidates in addition to the usual all-candidates forums for council candidates and school trustees.

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 chamber said they are focused on getting more people out to vote; in the 2011 municipal election, only 36 per cent of eligible voters cast a vote in Revelstoke.

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