Elections B.C. estimates that 35 per cent of voters, about 800,000 people, will choose to vote in the Oct. 24 election using mail-in ballots. The sheer number of mail-in ballots could mean that the election result won’t be known for nearly two weeks after election night.
Elections B.C., which has already received 20,000 requests for mail-in ballots, said the mail-in votes won’t be fully counted until Nov. 6.
There will be polling stations set up for advance voting, which will take place from Oct. 15 to Oct. 21, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., one more day for voting than there was in 2017. The advance polling includes two weekend days, Saturday, Oct. 17 and Sunday, Oct. 18.
Where to vote
You can search for your electoral district by your postal code, the name of the district, if you know it, by the candidate’s name, or by using a map. All options are on the Elections B.C. site, which is easy to use and self-explanatory.
There are 87 electoral districts in the province. If you need any assistance, call 1-800-661-8683.
