It is general election day in B.C. and the last chance for Cariboo residents to select the MLA that they want to represent them.
Polls will be open from 8 am until 8pm.
Here Wayne Rodier, the Chief Election Officer in Cariboo North, reminds us what we need to vote…
“What they need to bring is there where to vote card that they have, that will help us, either driver’s license or two pieces of ID, one of which has their address on it.”
Rodier says the best place for each person to vote will also be on their voter card although he says people can vote at any of the polling stations in their riding.
There are numerous places to vote in both ridings.
