Advance polls open in Langleys

Several opportunities to cast a ballot ahead of Nov. 19 election

There was a small lineup of about 10 people outside the polling station at the Timms Community Centre in the City of Langley on Tuesday afternoon when the first advance poll for the 2011 municipal election opened at 1 p.m.

It was followed by a steady trickle of early voters throughout the afternoon, many of them older residents who wanted to avoid lineups.

Advance voting at the 20355 Douglas Cres., location was to continue Wednesday and Thursday (from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)

There will be one more advance poll at Timms shortly on Thursday, Nov. 16 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

There are two opportunities left for advance polling in the Township: Wednesday, Nov. 9 and Wednesday, Nov. 16, both at Willowbrook Recreation Centre, 20338 65 Ave. on the first floor of Township city hall, 20338-65 Ave.
