By-election Saturday in Port Clements

  • Sep. 6, 2006 6:00 p.m.

Port Clements residents have the opportunity this Saturday (Sept. 9) to vote in a new member of the village council.
Three people are running for the position, which became available when councillor Derek Hoenen resigned in June. This issue of the Observer contains statements from all the candidates, starting on page 10.
Voting takes place between 8 am and 8 pm at the village office (not the community hall). Deputy election officer Heather Nelson-Smith said Port residents should bring one piece of photo ID with them if they are on the voters’ list, and two piece of ID if they are not on the list.
In order to vote, you must have been a resident of Port for at least the past 30 days, a resident of BC for at least six months, at least 18 years old, and a Canadian citizen.
The new councillor will serve for a little more than two years, with the next round of municipal elections scheduled for November 2008.
The Observer website will post the by-election results Saturday night as soon as we receive them. Check it out at www.qciobserver.com
