This Saturday residents from parts of Royston and Union Bay including Kilmarnock are being invited to come out and vote on the south sewer project. The south sewer project is a multi-phase, multi-partner initiative that would see the construction of a new centralized wastewater collection system and water resource recovery facility in the south region.

Regular polls will be open on Saturday, June 18, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Royston Elementary School (3830 Warren Avenue, Royston, B.C.) and Union Bay Community Church Hall (5533 Island Highway, Union Bay, B.C.).

There is no need to pre-register to vote, as the registration of all electors for this referendum will take place at the time of voting.

Resident electors, including renters and tenants of properties, must produce two pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) that together show the place of residence and the elector’s name. Picture identification is not necessary.

Non-resident property electors must produce two pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) that show the place of residence and their name, proof that they are entitled to register in relation to the property (such as a title certificate or property tax notice), and, if applicable, written consent from the other property owners. If there is more than one registered owner of the property, only one of those individuals may, with the written consent of the majority of the owners, register as a non-resident property elector and vote.

All voters must also be 18 years or older, a Canadian citizen and a resident of British Columbia for six months before Saturday.
