More voters in the Prince George-Valemount riding turned up to advanced polls this weekend than in Prince George-Mackenzie.

The numbers were pretty close though – 4.3% of registered voters in the PG-Mackenzie versus 4.9% percent in PG-Valemount.

Saturday was a much busier day at the polls for both ridings 820 people voted in the PG-Mackenzie riding on Saturday, compared to 557 on Sunday. In PG-Valemount, 1,047 voters cast ballots on Saturday, compared to just 603 on Sunday.

Local voters don’t seem to be as keen on voting early as those elsewhere in the province.
