If you're a new voter, register before August 15
You'll get a voter information card, and it'll be easier to vote.
Voter turnout in municipal elections is low, typically less than 40%. It’s especially low for younger people and renters, who are more likely to have moved recently.
There’s a voter information card that gets mailed out to all registered voters, making it easier to vote. If you’ve never voted before, or if you’ve moved, you may not be on the list of registered voters.
For the upcoming election on October 15, you can register to vote until Monday August 15, by filling out the Online Voter Registration form (name, address, id) run by Elections BC. It takes about five minutes.
If you think you’re already on the list of registered voters, but you’re not sure, you can check through a city of Vancouver website: Am I Registered To Vote?
If you don’t get a chance to register before August 15, you can still vote in the election, but you’ll need to register at the voting place.
