Provincial Elections

Who Can Vote?

Who Can Vote

To vote in a Provincial General Election, you must be a Canadian citizen, 18 or older on General Voting Day, and a resident of B.C. for the past six months.

Voting in a provincial election is an important part of British Columbia’s democratic process. It is a chance for every eligible person to influence policies that affect them on a daily basis. With only a simple mark on a ballot, voting lets British Columbians decide who will represent them and what their future will look like. The right to vote is protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and is one of Canada’s most cherished institutions.
