Vote Monday

  • Jun. 25, 2004 5:00 a.m.

Seven polling stations will be open on the islands on federal election day, Monday June 28, from 7 am until 7 pm. Polls are located at:

• Old Massett band council
chambers

• Masset community hall

• Port Clements community hall

• Tlell fire hall

• Skidegate community hall

• Queen Charlotte’s United Church Annex

• Sandspit community hall

Islanders should vote at the location indicated on their voter card. Returning officer Bill Smith said voters should bring their voter card with them if they received one. If they didn’t, they should bring ID so they can register at the poll and vote.
About 1,900 people voted in the first two days of advance polls in this riding, Mr. Smith said, which he called “fairly steady”. He added that it’s hard to compare voter turnout with previous years because the riding boundaries have been expanded.
Results will be available Monday night on the Elections Canada website at www.elections.ca
