KELOWNA - If you can't be in town on election day or any of the four advance voting days this November, the City of Kelowna has one more option to ensure you can have your say.

A vote by mail option is available and all it takes to participate is completion of a request for a mail ballot package, but it must be done by Friday, Oct. 24 for the package to arrive at your home in time to complete the second step. Another option is to fill out the request online, though an application is also available for pick-up at the Office of the City Clerk on the second floor of 1435 Water Street.

Anyone with disabilities or injuries preventing them from visiting a voting location can also apply for a mail-in ballot.

Completed ballots must then be returned to the Chief Election Officer at City Hall no later than 8 p.m. on election day, Saturday, Nov. 15.

To be elegible to vote you must be 18 years of age or older, a resident of Kelowna for 30 days or longer, living in B.C. for at least six months and a Canadian citizen.
