In order to vote in the local government elections, a person must, on the day of voting, qualify either as a Resident Elector or Non-Resident Property Elector. You must register as an elector and must not be disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in the election.

A Resident Elector must: be 18 years of age or older on voting day, and be a Canadian Citizen, and have been a resident of British Columbia for at least six months immediately before voting day, and have been a resident where they are voting for at least 30 days immediately before voting day.

RESIDENT ELECTOR: YOU WILL REGISTER ON VOTING DAYS IF YOU MEET THE QUALIFICATIONS SET OUT ABOVE AND HAVE IDENTIFICATION.

A Non-Resident Property Elector must: not be entitled to be registered as a Resident Elector, and be 18 years of age or older on voting day, and be a Canadian Citizen, and have been a resident of British Columbia for at least six months immediately before voting day, and, have been the owner of real property where you are voting for at least 30 days immediately before voting day (you will be required to show proof of ownership), and have received the written consent of a majority of the registered owners of the property designating you as the one who may vote (only one person may vote on the property qualification no matter how many owners there may be.)

NON-RESIDENT PROPERTY ELECTOR: YOU WILL REGISTER ON VOTING DAYS IF YOU MEET THE QUALIFICATIONS SET OUT ABOVE, HAVE IDENTIFICATION, PROOF OF OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY AND THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF A MAJORITY OF THE REGISTERED OWNERS OF THE PROPERTY DESIGNATING YOU AS THE ONE WHO MAY VOTE.

If there is more than one person who is the registered owner of real property, only one of those individuals may register as a Non-Resident Property Elector in relation to that property.

Landed immigrants who are not yet Canadian Citizens are not permitted to vote.

No corporation is entitled to be registered as an elector or have a representative registered as an elector and no corporation is entitled to vote.
