There were 475 voters who turned out to advanced polls in Fort St. John on Oct. 10.
City officials say that's positive news — just 570 voters turned out on both advanced voting days in 2014.
The city is desperately trying to shake off the stigma from that year, which saw the city record the lowest turnout at municipal polls across B.C. It was just 15 per cent, and down from 2008, when turnout registered at 23 per cent.
The next advanced voting day is scheduled for Oct. 17 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Legion.
Election day is Oct. 20.
