Hiring Election Officials
2022 general local elections will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2022. The RDOS is hiring election officials for the general election and for advance voting opportunities. Applicants must be available to work on Election Day from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm (14 hours). The ideal candidate must be able to attend the required training session(s) in advance of voting day. Paper copies of the application are available at the RDOS office at 101 Martin Street in Penticton. Please visit RDOS Regional Connections to apply or click here.

Parks and Recreation Survey
The RDOS has launched its annual Parks and Recreation Community Survey for Electoral Areas B, D, E, F, G and I. Each year, the recreation team reviews its services in participating Electoral Areas and offers the survey to ensure taxpayers have an influence on the type and level of service the RDOS provides. Visit RDOS Regional Connections to take the survey.

Keeping you informed about RDOS projects and initiatives is a priority. For further information, please call 250-492-0237 or email info@rdos.bc.ca.

The RDOS Board of Directors meets twice per month (Thursdays), managing both rural and corporate government issues. The 2022 schedule of meetings and agendas and Webex links are posted on the RDOS website.
