There are two types of voters. Resident and non-resident. There is no need to pre-register to vote, as the registration of all electors for voting will take place at the time of voting. Please bring at least two pieces of ID. One of them must have a signature.
Resident: You can vote if you live within the electoral area in which the vote is taking place (see the interactive map on the CRD website). You MUST be a Canadian citizen, be at least 18 years old, have lived in BC for at least the last six months and in the area for at least the last 30 days.
Non-resident: You can vote if you have owned property for at least 30 days within the electoral area in which the vote is taking place, but live elsewhere in BC. You must also be a Canadian citizen, be at least 18 years old, and have lived in BC for at least the last six months.
There is only one vote per property for non-resident property electors. If more than one person owns the property, the signatures of a majority of the owners are required. Contact the Chief or Deputy Chief Election Officer prior to voting day for more details.
