HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. — The District of Hudson’s Hope has set a date for its upcoming by-election following the resignation of Mayor Dave Heiberg earlier this month.

About two weeks after Heiberg’s resignation, councillor Travous Quibell submitted his resignation, stating that he intends to run for mayor. This means voters in Hudson’s Hope will select a new mayor and councillor when they head to the polls in July.

General voting for the by-election will be held Saturday, July 29th, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hudson’s Hope Community Hall at 10310 Kyllo Street.

Advanced voting will take place on Wednesday, July 19th, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the District of Hudson’s Hope municipal office at 9904 Dudley Drive.

Advanced voter registration is available now and will be accepted at the district office until June 6th. The district says that with the exception of registrations on voting days, elector registration won’t be accepted between June 7th to July 31st.

Those who are unsure if they’re registered to vote can visit the district’s office to view the list of registered voters or call them at 250-783-9901. Before viewing the list in person, residents must sign a statement agreeing they won’t inspect the list or use the information included in the list except for the purposes of Part 3 – Electors and Elections of the Local Government Act.

The district will begin accepting nominations for the by-election at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 13th.

Nominations forms are available at the district office and can be submitted by hand, fax, email, mail or other delivery services until 4 p.m. Friday, June 23rd.
