Two advance voting days available as well as general voting day

The View Royal byelection is quickly approaching and there are a few key dates to be aware of.

Voting day is on Nov. 18 but there will also be two advance voting opportunities. The first is on Nov. 8 and the second is Nov. 15. Voting takes place on both days from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at View Royal Town Hall, 45 View Royal Ave.
