Voter’s Guide answers common questions during election

The provincial government has put a voter's guide on-line

  • Oct. 29, 2014 5:00 p.m.

The Government of British Columbia is encouraging eligible  voters to participate in the local government election process and to  vote in local communities on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014.

 

To support voters, the Voter’s Guide to Local Elections in British  Columbia, is now available online at:  http://www.cscd.gov.bc.ca/lgd/elections_home.htm

 

The guides are available in English, simplified and traditional  Chinese, Punjabi, French and for the first time, Farsi and Korean,  and answer basic questions eligible voters might have as they prepare  to vote including:

 

• who can vote

• how to register to vote

• voting as a non-resident property elector

• identification required

 

The guide also covers advance voting. The required advance voting opportunity for the upcoming general local election is Wednesday,  Nov. 5, 2014, and many jurisdictions hold more than one advance  voting opportunity.

Sooke has two advance voting dates, November 5 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and November 12 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voting takes place at the Sooke Community Hall.

 

In addition to being available online, printed voter’s guides are  also available through Service BC Centres, and local MLA offices. The  voter’s guide is just one of many resources available online.

 

Important election calendar deadlines and answers to the most  commonly asked questions about local government elections are also  available by visiting:  http://www.cscd.gov.bc.ca/lgd/elections_home.htm

On Saturday, November 15, 2014, voters will elect mayors, councillors, electoral  area directors, Islands Trust local trustees, local community and park board commissioners and school trustees.

 

Election results will  be available through the Local Elections 2014 link on the CivicInfo  BC website at: www.civicinfo.bc.ca/
