Advance polls for Federal election open today, continue through Thanksgiving weekend

Prince Rupert's Election Central has taken over office space
at the old Farwest Sports Building on First Avenue West

Those who  may not be available for the October 21st General vote, or may wish to get their participation in the democratic process out of the way a bit early can take advantage of some advance polling opportunities over this Thanskgiving weekend.

The old Farwest Sports Building on First Avenue West across from the Museum of Northern BC is the destination for voters with the advance polling set to take place from today through Monday from 9 AM to 9PM each day.

General Election Day of October 21st will see the voting booths set up at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre complex on McBride Street.

Voter information cards were delivered to the
home addresses of  registered voters last month

Bring your voter information card which should have arrived at your home address by now with you to the polling station, along with Identification.

You can learn more about the electoral process and other voting opportunities prior to the General Election day from the Elections Canada website.

In addition to the household mailers and door knocking by the candidates and those who are working their campaigns, voters have had  a few chances to take in the talking points of those seeking office to hold the Skeena-Bulkley Valley seat in the House of Commons.

As we outlined yesterday, Prince Rupert's voters had an opportunity to hear the campaign themes at the Lester Centre forum on Wednesday evening.  

A similar event took place in Kitimat last night, with two more on the way next week in Smithers and Terrace.

You can follow the candidate along the campaign trail from the CityWest Community Television Facebook page which has the forums archived for residents to review.

We have also been keeping tabs on what the candidates have been up to through the last month, our notes on the 2019 local campaign which can be explored here.

We also have a look at he wider scope of the national campaign available on our political blog D'Arcy McGee.
