Our province is at a crossroads and we have a choice to make. This is our chance to create the future BC deserves, but only if we all cast our ballots for a Future for All.
Voting by mail is a great option to do this if you don’t feel comfortable voting in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here’s everything you need to know about applying for a vote-by-mail package and filling out your ballot:
- Click here to request your vote-by-mail package online before October 17 (you can still request a vote-by-mail package after this date in person at an Elections BC office or voting location).
- If you register after October 2nd, you will receive a regular ballot with a list of candidates. Mark your ballot with an X in the circle next to your candidate of choice. (If you registered earlier and have a write-in ballot, write the name of your preferred candidate OR political party in the empty box).
- Fold your ballot, put it in the secrecy sleeve and put this into the certification envelope.
- Sign the certification envelope and print your date of birth to confirm your identity - if you don't do this, your vote will not be counted!
- Put your signed certification envelope (with your completed ballot inside) inside the return envelope.
- Put your return envelope in the mail (no postage required if mailed in Canada) or drop it off at any Elections BC office, voting location or participating Service BC location.
- Mail your ballot as soon as you can to ensure it reaches Elections BC before 8pm on October 24.
Translated voter information materials in multiple languages including a guide to voting by mail can also be found here.
