What are we voting for?
Eligible voters in B.C. are voting to elect 87 Members of the Legislative Assembly. Each Member represents an electoral district (also known as a riding or constituency) and has a seat in the provincial Legislature.
After all the votes are counted for each electoral district, the political party that wins the most seats forms the the provincial government. The leader of that party becomes the Premier of B.C.
