Important dates for View Royal’s byelection

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.

General voting will also take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 18 but at View Royal Elementary, 218 Helmcken Rd.

The candidate nomination period began on Oct. 3 and ended on Oct. 13. Watch the Goldstream Gazette for profiles on candidates later this month.
