Registering to Vote

Registering to Vote

If you were listed on the Provincial Voters List, you should not have to register again. The Town of Qualicum Beach uses the Provincial Voters List prepared by Elections BC, to which it adds registered Non-Resident Property Electors. Visit the Elections BC website to register as a Provincial voter, check if you are a registered voter, or to update your registration information. NOTE: if you register provincially after mid-July 2018, you will not be on the Town’s List of Electors, as the Town will have already received the Provincial Voters List. Therefore, after the Town receives the Provincial Voters List (in early August 2018), you may call Town Hall (250.738.2207) to confirm if you are on the Qualicum Beach List of Electors. If you are not on the Town’s List of Electors, you may still register until Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at Town Hall, or when you vote at Advance Voting or on General Voting Day.

To register, you must bring at least two documents that prove who you are (BC Driver’s Licence, BC ID, Care Card, SIN card, Citizenship Card, bank credit or debit card) and where you live (telephone, hydro, or gas bill, property tax document); one of these documents must contain your signature. The acceptable classes of documents that election officials may accept as evidence to identify electors are established by the Province in Local Government Elections Regulation 380/93, Section 3 Click here to view these regulations.

Non-Resident Property Electors must also bring evidence of ownership (recent Land Title Certificate) and a Consent form signed by a majority of owners. Contact staff at Town Hall for the required forms.
