Election voting runs smoothly at Jim Ciccone Civic Centre

The doors to the polling stations are open at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre

The turnout has been light to moderate so far into this 2019 Election Day in Prince Rupert, with little in the way of delay for those who arrive at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre to cast their ballots so far.

Depending on whether you are in a chatty mood or not, you can be in and out of the polling station within five minutes, if our walk through of mid afternoon is any indication.

With short lines, or no lines at all at he polling stations spread out around the perimeter of the Russell Gamble Gymnasium.

The turnout of today comes after some strong results in advance voting which saw 8,989 voters in Skeena-Bulkley Valley get a head start on their Democratic responsibilities, that was slightly ahead of the pace from the 2015 election.

In the 2015 election, 44, 266 voters cast a ballot that from a total of 64,846 on the voters list that year.

Balloting continues until 7 PM tonight, results will be available through the Elections Canada website shortly after the doors to the polling stations closed.

If you haven't yet cast your ballot, take the time to make the trip to the Civic Centre to ensure that your voice is heard when it comes to the formation of our next Government.
