For residents of the Peace River Regional District and Area C, you can vote today at the Peace River Regional District Office in Fort St. John.

The first day of advance voting, a week ago today, resulted in turnout increases in both Fort St. John and Dawson Creek, and that surprised many observers, given there’s no mayoralty race this year in either community.

Here in Fort St. John there was a slight increase over the last election, in 2011, from 211 to 217, while in Dawson Creek, there was a more significant jump, from 167 to 308.

Locally, City Hall has also confirmed four special voting opportunities for tomorrow and another one on Election Day.

Once again we note, the polling tomorrow will begin at the Peace Villa Care Centre at 8407 112th avenue, from 10am to noon.

Other locations will be, at Abbeyfield House at 8112 96th avenue from 1.30 p.m. to 2 p.m., at the Peace Lutheran Apartments at 9812 108th avenue, from 2.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. and finally, at Heritage Manor, which is located at 9819 107th avenue, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

On Saturday there will be special voting at the Fort St. John Hospital from 1.30 to 3pm.

Voters in the city have a choice of twelve candidates to fill the six City Council vacancies and five candidates, running for three trustee positions, on the District 60 school board.
