The vote to determine the top 10 finalists in the Kraft Hockeyville contest took place on Tuesday, March 8. Unfortunately, this ran past the Arrow Lakes News deadline, but just in case, here’s all the information to help possibly move Nakusp on to that next step.

Starting on March 8 at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time the voting booths were open. This determines which communities can enter the top five, the second last ballot before the top community is chosen.

Voting is open by all channels 24 hours a day and will run from March 8–13 until 11:59 p.m.

You can vote in two ways by either going online and visiting and casting your vote then.

You can also phone in to 1-866-533-8066 and follow the voice prompts to cast your vote via telephone.

The Kraft Hockeyville website says if you get a busy signal, try voting online or calling back at another time.

CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada will recap the top ten and give a call for the final vote on March 12.

On March 19, Hockey Night in Canada will announce the top five communities.

From March 19–21, voting will begin starting at 11 p.m. Eastern Standard Time where you can still vote online or by phone.

On April 2, CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada will broadcast live in the top five communities and announce the overall winner.
