Today’s the day – Princeton chooses its direction

Today’s the day Princeton chooses a new mayor and council.

Voting takes place at the Princeton Legion on Bridge Street, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Residents will be choosing between three people for mayor – incumbent Frank Armitage, and hopefuls Spencer Coyne and Leona Guerster – and will elect four councillors from a field of 15 candidates.

The advanced poll held last Wednesday drew a large turn out, according to Chief Elections Officer Cheryl Martens, who reported 302 ballots were cast.

Residents who are not registered can vote, but they must have two pieces of identification, at least one with a signature and one with an address. Picture ID is not necessary.

In order to vote you must be :

• 18 years or older

• A Canadian citizen

• A resident of BC for at least six months

• A resident or registered property owner in Princeton for at least 30 days.

The Town of Princeton has arranged free bus service for those who wish to vote but have mobility difficulties. The cost is being covered by the town’s election budget. Call BC Transit at 250-295-6666 to book your appointment.

Follow the Spotlight for updates throughout the day, and for coverage of the results tonight.

The Spotlight will be reporting the returns from municipal hall on Facebook Live beginning at 8 p.m.
