To receive a mail-in ballot package you must first submit, a mail-in ballot application to the Regional District office between November 1, 2011 and November 17, 2011. To obtain the application please go to the RDOS website.

There are two persons nominated as candidates for Area ‘H’ director. Brad Hope, who is the current director, and Charles Weber who we know from the Princeton Aquatic Centre Committee.

Some people may also have property in the Town of Princeton and be eligible to vote for the Mayor there. This position has a strong effect on Area ‘H’ policy, so please don’t miss out on voicing your opinion there. The two relevant candidates are Fred Thomas, and Randy McLean, who is the current Mayor. §
