Step 1: See if you are on the registered voter’s list:

Bring your un-signed registration form and two pieces of ID with your address and signature to a voting station. Voting takes place in person (or IRL) at voting stations set up at various locations within the City of Vancouver. Last election, there were approximately 100+ voting stations. 



Advanced polling dates: 8 am - 8pm October 10 -17th, 2018

Election date: 8am - 8pm Saturday, October 20th, 2018

Step 4: Vote for: up to 10 city councillors, 1 mayor, 7 parks board commissioners, and 9 school board trustees. If you choose more than the maximum amount, your vote will not be counted.
