The Writs of Election

B.C.’s Chief Electoral Officer has issued the writs of election for the 42nd Provincial General Election. General Voting Day will take place on Saturday, October 24.

The writ of election is a formal order signed by the Chief Electoral Officer and the Lieutenant Governor that directs a District Electoral Officer to conduct an election. An election is called when the writ of election has been issued. In a general election, a writ is issued for each of the province’s 87 electoral districts. When they are returned, the election period is officially over.
