Polling stations open for by-election


Lynn Chipley, Marge Young, Trevor Knibbs, Mohammad Waseem and Rev. Stewart Miller participated in a candidates’ forum April 22 at the Estevan Royal Canadian Legion.

The polling station is open for today's civic by-election in Estevan.

The poll, which is located at the Estevan Church of God, opened at 9 a.m., and it will remain open until 8 p.m.

Five candidates - Lynn Chipley, Trevor Knibbs, Rev. Stewart Miller, Mohammad Waseem and Marge Young - are vying for one vacant seat on Estevan City Council.

Chipley was a city councillor from 2006 to 2012. She was defeated in the mayoral race in the 2012 civic election.

Waseem made a pitch for councillor in the 2012 election, but finished eighth.

Knibbs, Miller and Young are running for council for the first time.

Two non-binding questions are also on the ballot. The first is on whether fluoridation of Estevan's water supply should continue. The other will measure local support for a casino development proposed by the Little Pine First Nation.

Automated balloting is being utilized in a local election for the first time. It's expected that it will significantly accelerate the vote tabulation process once the polls close.

Please come back to this evening for more on the by-election.
