Can I vote?

In order to cast your ballot you must be:

  • 18 years or older
  • A Canadian citizen
  • A resident of B.C. for at least six months
  • A resident or registered property owner in the voting area for at least 30 days
  • Not disqualified from voting by any statute or law

What should I bring?

Local governments uses the provincial voters list, so voters registered provincially are registered locally as well.

Unregistered voters can still cast a ballot, but they must have two pieces of identification, at least one with a signature and one with a residential address. Accepted pieces of I.D. include a driver’s licence, B.C. care card, credit or debit card or a electricity, water, or natural gas utility bill.

People who own property in the voting area but live elsewhere can also vote. They just need to bring proof that they are registered with the property (e.g. the year’s tax notice).

People who have mobility needs can go to the polls and have someone vote on their behalf if they can’t make it themselves.
