The byelection for a director to represent Electoral Area C on the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) Board is set for June 4.

The byelection is taking place due to the passing of long-time director Maureen Young in November.

The RDN Board appointed the chief election officer on March 8, according to a media release by the regional district. Interested candidates can pick up nomination packages at the RDN administration office (6300 Hammond Bay Road, Nanaimo). 

Electoral Area C residents will be able to vote in advanced polling opportunities on May 25 and June 1.

Alternate Director Charles Pinker will remain as the interim director for Electoral Area C until the byelection. The RDN thanks Alternate Director Pinker for his time and efforts in fulfilling the role of interim director after the passing of Young.

Candidates can file nomination papers with the RDN’s chief election officer starting at 9 a.m. on April 19. The deadline to file nomination papers is 4 p.m. on April 29. To file papers, candidates are asked to call 250-390-4111 to make an appointment.
