Voters in Nanaimo are heading to the polls Saturday to elect a new city councillor.
There are 13 candidates vying for the empty seat.
This is the second time in six years that the city has had to have a by-election.
The seat is up for grabs after councillor Wendy Pratt resigned in April.
That happened shortly after a criminal investigation launched into matters surrounding Nanaimo City Council, which has been plagued by controversy.
