On Saturday, November 19, 2011, qualified electors within Bowen Island Municipality will be voting on the following question:

“Do you support the creation of a National Park Reserve on Bowen Island? Yes/No”


Scrutineers for and against the Question must be appointed if applications are received from persons who wish to volunteer for the positions.  Only persons entitled to vote as electors on the question shown above are entitled to act as scrutineers.


Scrutineer applications are being received for the following election opportunities:

·            Wednesday, November 9, 2011 ADVANCE POLL (Bowen Island) 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
