You Can Vote!

Local Elections (also called Municipal or Community Elections) are taking place this November 15th, 2014 across BC. A minimum of one Advance Voting day on November 5th will also take place in each community.
These elections are to select not only Mayor and Councillors, but also School Trustees and other Trustees and Directors, and are an opportunity for referendum questions to be asked.

You can vote as a Resident Elector if you are:

  • age 18 or older on voting day (November 15, 2014); and
  • a Canadian citizen; and
  • a resident of BC for at least six months immediately before the day of registration; and
  • a resident of the municipality or voting area for at least 30 days immediately before the day of registration; and
  • not disqualified by any enactment from voting in an election or otherwise disqualified by law.
If you own property in a municipality where you do not reside, you may also qualify as a Non-Resident Property Elector. Check with your electoral area for registration information.
