We've been running our local elections online poll now for one week, with the elections now less than two weeks away. Leading into tonights candidate debates at ArtSpring, we wanted to update everyone on how the polls are shaping up. As people participate in the polls and make decisions about their candidates we've seen an excellent response .
As of the writing of this story, 464 people have participated in the School Trustee poll, 455 in the Islands Trustee poll, and 407 in the CRD director poll. Our goal was 500 participants before the election and we're likely to reach and exceed this goal. 500+ voters represents apx. 5% of the 10,000 or so permanent residents of Salt Spring and we believe having this many participants will begin to give good insights into the potential outcome of the election on the 19th.
