Polls open for Kelowna-West byelection to fill Christy Clark's former seat
Former premier resigned as MLA on Aug. 4
Voters are heading to the polls in Kelowna today, casting ballots to replace former premier Christy Clark.
She resigned as MLA for Kelowna-West on Aug. 4, just over a month after Premier John Horgan was sworn in. He took office after forming a historic alliance with the B.C. Green Party after a tumultuous provincial election.
Clark also resigned as leader of the B.C. Liberal party last summer, saying she was leaving politics and public life for good.
Horgan called for the byelection last month.
The other candidates are Shelley Cook for the NDP, Robert Stupka for the Greens, Mark Thompson for the Conservatives and Kyle Michael Ernest Geronazzo for the Libertarians.
The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
