Elections

Advance poll turnout mixed

Advance polling in the City of Parksville is down over the civic election of 2008.

Total advance poll numbers 683 votes cast on Nov. 9 and 16 combined (including 40 votes from special voting at the local seniors facilities). That’s slightly lower than the 719 cast in 2008’s advance polls.

In Qualicum Beach, the trend is reversed. This year’s advance polls drew 1,424 voters — it’s almost 300 more than advance polling done in the 2008 election.

In addition, votes that arrived via mail in Qualicum Beach totalled 169 — more than the 113 received by mail in 2008.
