The Thompson Nicola Regional District chief election officer announced Saturday evening the preliminary election results for a TNRD by-election held that day for Lower North Thompson (Area O).

There was an extremely poor voter turnout. Bill Kershaw won the election with 127 votes in his favor, while Mike Fennel received 118 votes.

The preliminary results are based on the ballot accounts by calculating the total number of valid votes for each candidate. Determination of official results will be announced before 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Kershaw is a former TNRD director and is presently a Barriere town councilor. Fennell was also a TNRD director and was Barriere's first mayor.

The election was held Saturday to elect a replacement for former Area O director Bonnie CruzelleMyram, who passed away earlier this year.

Lower North Thompson (Area O) includes Little Fort and the area around Barriere, but not District of Barriere itself.
