PENTICTON - Knowing where the Penticton municipal election candidates live may not be a critical issue to many residents, but it may factor in some voters' decision at the ballot box given the number of people running for mayor and council.

As part of our election coverage iNFOnews.ca asked all the candidates which neighbourhood they call home.

It appears the most popular neighbourhood for candidates in this year's election is the city's core, with two mayoral candidates and four council candidates claiming the downtown area as their place of residence, while two mayoral candidates and one council candidate call outlying communities home.

Here's a breakdown of where the candidates currently live, at least those who responded to our question:


James Blake (mayoral candidate)
