This November’s civic election could have a higher turnout in Vancouver.
Changes include opening advance polls for 8 days at 8 separate locations and allowing people to cast a ballot at any of the 120 community centres across the city on voting day.
Vancouver’s Chief Election Officer Janice Mackenzie says voting will also be held for the first time at the Vancouver Art Gallery and a couple of shopping centres.
“That location may be at a community centre where you or your kids take swimming lessons or swim or play sports on Saturday, near a gym or yoga studio that you frequent, close to where you do your Saturday errands or just a short walk from your home.”
In the past, voters had to cast ballots at designated polling stations in their neighbourhoods.
