Revelstoke goes to polls on October 20

Municipal elections to take place on third Saturday in October across the province

Revelstoke will be going to the polls on Oct. 20.

Across B.C., municipalities will be voting for local mayor, council, school trustees and regional district representatives.

The civic elections take place every four years on the third Saturday of October.

During a regular City Council meeting on March 27, Dawn Low was appointed the chief election officer for the City of Revelstoke and Teresa LeRose was appointed the deputy chief election officer.

A council report prepared by Chief Administrative Officer Allan Chabot said that staff are in the midst of preparing a revised Local Elections Procedure Bylaw that will be in front of Council this April.

According to the report, the funding for the election was included in the administration department’s budget and the School District will reimburse the City for any additional costs from the school trustee election.

As of press time, no one had officially entered their name into the race.

Low said that an advanced polling station will be open at the Community Centre on Oct. 10 and 17 and a mobile voting station will do the rounds at the hospital and senior care homes on Oct. 20. A mail-in vote will also be available.

Revelstoke will not be using the B.C. voter’s list and will instead require voters to bring two pieces of I.D. (one should be photo) to the polling station.

More information about the fall vote will become available in the coming months.
