Advance poll date near for arena vote

Advance polls will run Nov. 18 and Nov. 25 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Greater Vernon

Greater Vernon residents have two early opportunities to cast their ballot on a new arena.

There will be a referendum Nov. 28 asking residents to borrow $13.2 million to twin Kal Tire Place, but advance polls will run Nov. 18 and Nov. 25 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Regional District of North Okanagan office, Vernon city hall and the Coldstream municipal office.

“We would like residents to be aware that this is an area wide vote,” said Paddy Juniper, RDNO deputy corporate officer.

“Residents can vote at any one of the polling stations.”

Also, this vote is open to residents of the Okanagan Indian Reserve located within Area B.

“Some of the more populated ones that come to mind are Sandy Beach, Lakepointe, Holiday Park, Coyote Creek, Desert Cove and Lawrence Heights,” said Juniper.
