The advance poll at Conestoga College residence wasn’t exactly a happening place. It was held Sept. 29 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“We’ve had 15 (voters) since this morning,” said Paul Mundy, who supervised the residence polling station. “We’re anticipating a few more. It’s mostly been students from the residence here.”

Mundy didn’t seem to be too concerned about the lack of students voting.

“We were hoping for more,” he said. “But we’re happy with what we got.” Overall the total number of students who voted was 25, according to Elections Ontario.

Mundy went on to say one of the reasons there wasn’t a big turnout was because most of the students in rez were from out of town and were under the impression they had to go home to vote.
