Everything you need to know ahead of the Oct. 20 municipal election in Whistler

Whistler Off-Road Cycling Association is hosting an all-candidates meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 9


Do you know who you're voting for in the upcoming municipal election?

On Oct. 20, Whistlerites will head to the polls to elect the candidates they'd most like to see represent their community for the next four years. With Jack Crompton already acclaimed as mayor, six new councillors still need to be chosen from a field of 20 candidates.

Whether you're feeling overwhelmed by the options or just want to get to know each candidate a little better, Pique has made it easier for you. We've compiled all candidate profiles, as well as recaps of the previous two all-candidates meetings, at the following link:

If you'd prefer to speak to the candidates face-to-face, there will be another opportunity to do so an all-candidates meeting hosted by the Whistler Off-Road Cycling Association in Whistler Secondary School's multi-purpose room on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

The format will allow for a short speech by each candidate followed by speed dating-style questions at different tables. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the event scheduled to run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Advance voting takes place on Oct. 10 and 13.
