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: 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.

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
