The Kamloops Voters Society is a group of concerned citizens that investigates and researches various city happenings.

At one time, it had 120 members who met in the Clocktower Theatre at Thompson Rivers University. However, KVS disbanded following the 2014 civic election, when members Denis Walsh and Dieter Dudy were elected.

Those two elected officials remain on city council five years later.

KVS has since reconvened, with Sunderman previously telling KTW it was concerned about issues such as the industrial tax rate. The group plans to hold its annual general meeting later this month.
