ELECTION: Record-breaking advanced poll turnout in Surrey

SURREY — The number of Surrey voters who cast their ballot before election day this year was an all-time high for the city.

Surrey elections official Anthony Capuccinello said a total of 6,396 ballots were cast during advanced voting in 2011.

This year, after five days of advanced voting, a total of 11,747 ballots were cast, he said.

“It almost doubled from last year, so we’re very pleased about that. There’s certainly a lot of voter interest,” said Capuccinello.

He added he’s optimistic the increase in voter turnout will continue on general voting day, Nov. 15.
