Register to Vote

Voter registration for the provincial election is now closed online and by phone, but you can still register or update your information when you vote in person or by mail. You may need to provide photocopies of acceptable ID if voting by mail. 

To register to vote in British Columbia, you must be:

  • 18 or older by General Voting Day,
  • a Canadian citizen, and
  • a B.C. resident for the past six months as of General Voting Day.

To vote by mail, request a vote-by-mail package. If you are not registered to vote or your voter information is out of date, your vote-by-mail package will include instructions on how to register or update your information. You will need to provide photocopies of valid identification.

To vote in person, look for your Where to Vote Card in the mail or see our Where to Vote page. You will need to show valid identification when you go to vote.
