City's Electoral Officer outlines timeline towards October 20th Municipal vote

With the official acclamation Friday of Lee Brain as mayor of Prince Rupert for another four year term, the city's Chief Electoral Officer turned our attention towards the timeline and benchmark moments ahead for the 2018 Municipal and School District election period.

In an information release from Friday, Corinne Bomben made note of the official list of eight candidates for City Council and eleven candidates in Prince Rupert for the School District 52 Board, with six of each to be elected to office on October 20th.

As well as the nomination lists, Ms. Bomben also provided the Voting Opportunities that will chart the course towards the General Voting Day of October 20th, when Prince Rupert residents will cast their ballots at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre from 8 AM to 8 PM.

Other voting opportunities include Advance Polls taking place at Prince Rupert City Hall's Custer Service Room

October 10th
October 17th between the hours of 8AM and 8 PM

Another Advance voting opportunity is scheduled for October 18th in the lobby of Prince Rupert Regional Hospital between 1 and 5 PM

Patients of Prince Rupert Regional Hospital and residents at Acropolis Manor will also be able to vote in a Special Voting Opportunity.

The City of Prince Rupert also offers a General Voting Opportunity for those who may be confined to their homes or cannot leave their homes on October 20th General Vote.

An Additional General Voting Opportunity will be held for electors who, for medical reasons or because of infirmity, cannot leave their residence on general voting day, by having a mobile voting place operated by City of Prince Rupert voting staff attend the residence of such an elector to allow that person to vote. Requests to have a mobile voting station attend a residence on general voting day must be received by the Chief Election Officer or the Deputy Chief Election Officer or a designate, before 5:00 pm on the 18th day of October, 2018.

Full details related to all of the Vote options as well as information for those that are not currently on the Provincial list of electors can be found here.
