Need a lift to the polls?

Both Frank Leonard and David Cubberley’s campaigns are offering rides to and from polling stations on election day if you can’t make it there on your own.

Volunteers from both camps will pick up Saanich residents at their availability and take them to the nearest polling station, or to Saanich municipal hall, if you wish to vote in advance polls.

“As many people as we can get to the polls that need to be there, the better,” said Catherine Dooner, a volunteer on Cubberley’s campaign.

Mike Cunningham, with Leonard’s campaign, says they are also trying to remind residents who are physically unable to go vote that mail-in ballots are available this election.

“We haven’t had a lot of requests just yet, but this is something that usually keeps our volunteers fairly busy on election day,” Cunningham said.

Voters can apply for a mail-in any time before Nov. 17 by calling 250-475-1775 or emailing 2011LocalElection@saanich.ca.

To request a ride to a polling station on election day or to the Monday Nov. 14 advance poll, call 778-679-2209 (Leonard) or 250-580-0122 (Cubberley).
