Voter Information

With just over 10 days to go until election day in the City of Vancouver, I wanted to pass along to people and easy way to find out where they can go to vote.

WHERE CAN I VOTE EARLY?

There are advanced polls on November 5, 8, 10 and 12 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. at the following five locations:

  • City Hall
  • Dunbar Community Centre
  • Trout Lake Community Centre
  • West End Community Centre
  • Sunset Community Centre

Make sure you bring two pieces of identification containing your name and address. One of these pieces of identification must also contain your signature. (Drivers license and hydro bill for example). More info on identification documents can be found here.

WHO CAN VOTE?

ou are allowed to vote in a Vancouver civic election if you are

  • a resident elector (ie. you live in Vancouver)
  • OR
  • a non-resident property elector (ie. you live elsewhere in B.C. but you own property in Vancouver)

You must meet ALL of the following requirements to vote:

  1. You must be 18 years of age or older on general voting day (November 15, 2008).
  2. You must be a Canadian citizen.
  3. You must have been a resident of B.C. for at least six months immediately before you register to vote.
  4. You must have
    • been a resident of Vancouver for at least 30 days immediately before you register to vote (for resident electors)

    OR
