Today’s the final day to get your name on the ballot for the 2018 Vancouver civic election. So let’s look at the before-the-deadline figures, just to see who’s announced (or rumoured to be in the swirl) as against who makes the effort to submit papers and a deposit. Those final names should be available after 4 pm today.
With thanks to Ian Bushfield for his marvelous spreadsheet:
- Mayor 14 (7 parties plus 6 independents, including Rollergirl a.k.a. Angela Dawson, and the little-known BUDAY, Gölök Z)
- Council 58 (9 parties plus 19 independents)
The mayoral count includes Katy Le Rougetel, who has already filed, and seems to have previously run for mayor of Calgary as a member of the Communist League.
