Voting Dates, Times & Locations

Voter Registration & Eligibility

There is no need to pre-register to vote; registration of all electors for this election will take place at time of voting. General election voter eligibility is determined by Elections BC. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms gives Canadian citizens the right to vote. Elections BC is the custodian of that right on behalf of BC voters. 

The Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development provides a Voter's Guide that will answer many of the questions BC residents have about local government elections. The guide is available in other languages directly from the Ministry's website

You are eligible to vote as a Resident Elector if you are:

  • 18 years of age or older;
  • A Canadian citizen;
  • A resident of BC for at least 6 months immediately preceding voting day;
  • A resident of OR registered owner of real property in the jurisdiction or at least 30 days immediately preceding voting day; and
  • Not otherwise disqualified under the Local Government Act, or any other enactment, or by law from voting in a local election.

You do not need to own property to vote as a Resident Elector.

Landed immigrants and corporations are not eligible to vote.

You are eligible to vote as a Non-Resident Property Elector if you:

  • Are 18 years of age or older on general voting day;
  • Are a Canadian citizen;
  • Have lived in British Columbia for at least six months immediately before you register to vote (May 13, 2014);
  • Have owned property in the jurisdiction for at least 30 days immediately before you register to vote; and
  • Are not otherwise disqualified under the Local Government Act, or any other enactment, or by law from voting in a local election.

You may only register in relation to one piece of property. If more than one person owns the property, only one of the owners may register and that person must have the written consent of the majority of the owners. If you own the property with a corporation, none of the owners of the property are eligible to vote. In accordance with the Local Government Act, the only persons who are registered owners, either as joint tenants or tenants in common can vote. They must not be holding the property in trust for a corporation or another trust.

Non-Resident Property Electors must also bring evidence of ownership (recent Land Title Certificate) and a Consent form signed by a majority of owners. Contact the SLRD for the required forms in advance of voting day. Please note, forms will be available at the time of voter registration but will only be accepted if signed by a majority of owners. Unsigned or incomplete forms will not be accepted.

Proof of Identity

You must bring at least two documents that prove who you are (BC Driver's Licence, BC ID, Care Card, SIN card, Citizenship Card, bank credit or debit card) and where you live (Driver’s License, telephone, hydro, or gas bill, property tax document); one of these documents must contain your signature. The acceptable classes of documents that election officials may accept as evidence to identify electors are established by the Province in Local Government Elections Regulation 380/93, Section 3. Click here to view these regulations.

Assistance with Voting and Curb Side Voting

If you are unable to mark, read or translate your ballot, an election official, friend or relative may assist you, after making a solemn declaration to not influence you and to keep your vote secret.

If you can travel to the voting place, but find it difficult to get into the building, you may request 'curb side' voting and election officials will bring your ballot to you! Send someone into the Voting Place, or call 604-698-6158 in advance, to request 'curb side voting' when you arrive to vote.
