Many of the property owners around Gun Lake are eligible to vote. I live in one jurisdiction and I own property in another – can I vote in both jurisdictions? Generally YES but the answers are in this link. SLRD Voter Information
Many of you are seasonal residents so you may be able to vote via a Mail Ballot. Mail Ballot voting Information link. Request a ballot between October 3, 2018 and October 18, 2018. This is the first time we have been able to vote by Mail Ballot.
More information is available in our current Regional Director's Blog
