On Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, the CSRD will hold the General Local Elections for Electoral Area Director in Electoral Areas B, C, E and F and an assent vote (referendum) on the Electoral Area A - Core Facilities Contribution Service Bylaw No. 5777.

The CSRD election pages contains details about the 2018 Election, including key election dates, candidate nomination process and elector eligibility. 

Two candidates, Karen Cathcart in Electoral Area A and Rene Talbot in Electoral Area D, have already been declared elected by acclamation.
