Each location will be open for 12 hours per day (8:00 am to 8:00 pm) for a total of 768 hours of advance voting prior to the election. This represents a 320 per cent increase over 2008.

Election Day

Saturday, November 15 is the official election day. You can cast your vote at any of about 120 voting stations around the city, picking the location that is most convenient.

Before you vote, visit our online election planner

As part of the City’s commitment to using digital tools to improve how citizens interact with local government, a user-friendly election planner has been developed.

Using this simple tool, you can easily review the dozens of candidates and keep track of your favourites, then quickly find voting times and locations that fit your schedule. You can then generate a summary of your choices to print out or receive by email, plus get an automatic calendar reminder. 

Make a plan

What to bring to the polls

To vote in advance, or on election day, bring your Voter Information Card to a voting station to make the voting process as quick and efficient as possible. If you are not on the voting list, you will need to show two pieces of identification and complete a voter registration form to be signed in front of an election official.

With more advance voting opportunities than ever before, and the introduction of the digital plan-your-vote tool, the City hopes that more people than ever take the time to cast their vote, and help shape Vancouver’s future.
