The nomination period for candidates for the B.C. municipal elections has closed and the official list of candidates has been released.

Municipalities in the Strathcona region of the island have large slates of candidates vying for either mayor or councillor seats this fall. Gold River and Tahsis will each have mayoral contests as well as councillor contests, while Sayward and Zeballos only have one candidate each running for mayor.

The election will be on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
