Know your City election boundaries

Residents living near the border of Penticton’s election boundaries are being asked to double check if their property falls within City limits. 

Non-addressed election information cards were delivered to properties across the City, with some accidently delivered to properties outside Penticton, specifically properties in the areas of Skaha Hills, Westbench and Red Wing.

“Bulk mail delivery, which relies on postal codes, and municipal election boundaries don’t always align”, said Penticton’s Chief Election Officer, Laurie Darcus.  “If you’ve received a Penticton election information card and you live along the City’s election boundary, please check the maps available on www.penticton.ca to ensure you’re eligible to vote in Penticton”.
