To vote in a Provincial General Election or by-election, you must be a Canadian citizen, 18 or older on General Voting Day, and a resident of B.C. for six months before General Voting Day.
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 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
