Candidates for political office in Revelstoke can pick up their nomination packages starting Friday.

The nomination packages for people running for mayor, council and school board will be available at Revelstoke city hall and on the city’s website starting Friday, Aug. 22.

The nomination period for the Nov. 15 municipal election starts Tuesday, Sept. 30, and ends Friday, Oct. 10 at 4 p.m., meaning candidates have seven weeks to decided if they want to run, file their paper work and pay the $50 nomination deposit.

Candidates must be nominated by two eligible voters.

They have to be a Canadian citizen, at least 18 years old and have lived in B.C. for the six months prior to filing their election papers.

Candidates elected to office this year will serve for four years instead of three.

Voting will take place at the community centre on Saturday, Nov. 15. Advance voting will take place on Nov. 5 and Nov. 12. Voting by mail is also possible for those who are eligible.

Teresa LeRose was appointed as the city’s Chief Elections Officer earlier this year. To confirm you are on the voters list, call the city at 250-837-2911.
