Hear from some of Penticton’s voters

We took to the street to find out what pushed people to the polls

As the time draws nearer to the polls closing, we took the streets to hear what got voters out this election season.

For many, the chance to decide who the next mayor and council will be was enough to get them to the polls. Others said they were upset by previous council decisions and that impacted their vote.

Penticton’s election season saw forums focused on many issues including the Skaha Lake Park development, the homelessness problem, lack of housing, and spending. Candidates each had their own solution for addressing these problems.
