Ballot

Not convenient to vote on voting day, Saturday, Oct. 15?

If not, there are five advance days– on Oct. 1, 5, 6, 7 and 8 – when Richmond residents can cast their ballots for mayor, eight city councillors and seven school trustees.

Advance voting will take place at Richmond City Hall on all five days. On Oct. 6, there will be advance voting at Kwantlen Polytechnic (8771 Lansdowne Rd.).

Furthermore, on Oct. 8, in addition to city hall, voters can cast ballots at four high schools: Burnett, Cambie, McMath and McRoberts.

All voting on advance days as well as on general election day, Oct. 15, takes place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters can cast their ballot at any polling station during the five advance voting days, but, on Oct. 15, they have to cast their ballot at their designated polling station.

The City of Richmond uses the provincial voting list. Anyone on that list should receive their voter card in the mail.

If you’re not on the voters list, you can register when you go to vote.

Non-resident property electors need to register every election. For more information, contact the city at elections@richmond.ca or by phone at 604-276-4100.
