By-Election Coming to a Close

Polls close in less than an hour and judging by the numbers I reported, it would seem that the voter turn out in the North is going to be less than stellar. Of course there was still four hours of voting left at the time.

Every hour the various polls report their numbers to city hall and at 5pm Holly Elementary was the most visited polling station having received over 800 ballots. "We're hoping to get over 1000 votes here today," said Sheryl, the PO for Holly Elementary. The candidates will be heading down to Delta Municipal Hall to await the announcement of who will be the councilor to take over for the late George Hawksworth.

No matter what the outcome, with so many people heading to the polls democracy should be well served tonight. The candidates I spoke to have worked very hard to have their voices heard and they all have one thing in common. A hard working group of people that have supported them throughout this election. On a telephone conversation with potential candidate Sandeep Pandher, I asked him if he was coming down to city hall to await the results and his reply was, "I am going to come down to the Hall I need to be with the people, but I want to stay here at my house with the people that worked so hard on this campaign."

As we wait for the results, one can only hope that the excitement that this by-election has produced can somehow be maintained until next year when we all have to go to the polls again.
