Increased turnout for Langley vote

Advance polls up in city; Township sets all-time record

More Langley voters than ever have cast their ballots in the advance polls leading up to the Saturday, Nov. 15 election.

Just under 2,000 voters (1,993 to be exact) voters went to the polls in the Township, an all-time record that represents a 22 per cent increase from the 2011 advance poll.
