Residents in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District seeking to find out where to vote in the civic election can go online and access a new digital tool.
The voting location tool can be found online at https://tinyurl.com/54rdnx97.
The regional district board has heard from a staffer about confusion from some residents about polling stations and electoral area boundaries.
The tool is designed to simplify the process and makes it easier to get out and vote.
A number of directors in various areas have already been acclaimed, including:
• Lee Onslow in Area B (Thompson Headwaters);
• David Laird in Area M (Nicola Valley North);
• Herb Graham in Area N (Nicola Valley South);
• and Jill Hayward in Area O (Lower North Thompson).
Six electoral areas (Wells Gray Country, Bonaparte Plateau, Blue Sky Country, Copper Desert Country, Grasslands and Rivers and the Peaks) are up for grabs.
Advanced voting is underway in the regional district.
General voting day is on Oct. 15.
