Williams Lake residents took advantage of the opportunity to cast their ballot in the Federal election over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Advanced polls were available at the Seniors Activity Centre in Williams Lake throughout the holiday weekend.
“It has been very busy in Williams Lake,” assistant returning officer Carla Bullinger confirmed Monday night.
In the time that the Tribune was there Monday, voters of all ages could be seen heading in to vote.
Phyllis and Theodore Robinson have lived in Williams Lake for the past ten years, and were two of more than 2,000 residents who voted over the Thanksgiving weekend.
“We wanted to avoid the long line-ups,” Phyllis said of why they were voting in advance of the Oct. 21 election.
Those who missed the chance to vote at the Seniors Centre on the long weekend still have all day Tuesday at the local elections office located at 160 A Oliver Street (beside Woodland Jewellers) to vote. The office is opened from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
The next chance to vote after Tuesday will be on Voting Day, Oct. 21.
