Though provincial election season is still in its infancy, voting is underway in Shawville for the council seat three, left vacant after the sudden passing of former councillor Peggie Sheppard in March.
Advance polls took place at Dr. S.E. McDowell Elementary School on May. 3, with 229 out of 1,285 eligible voters turning up to perform their civic duty.
Three candidates have put their name forward and have been vigorously canvassing the local electorate through social media, signage and good, old-fashioned, door-to-door solicitation.
