Elections B.C. updating provincial voters list

Elections B.C. is conducting an enumeration and updating the provincial voters list for the May 14 provincial election.

“Elections B.C. is implementing a multi-layered approach to enumerating the province in advance of the May 2013 provincial general election” said Keith Archer, chief electoral officer.  “We are asking eligible voters to register and those already on the list to ensure their voter registration is up-to-date.”

Beginning Monday (Feb. 25) more than 1.9 million notices will be mailed to residential addresses in the province asking eligible residents to register to vote or to update their voter registration information.

Residents can do so online (www.elections.bc.ca/ovr) or by calling Elections B.C. at 1-800-661-8683.  Residents may also identify the names of voters no longer living at their address and request that their name be removed from the address.

Starting on March 6, Elections B.C. voter registration officials will provide voter registration opportunities throughout the province at shopping malls, community centres, campuses and more.

Voter registration officials will be conducting door-to-door visits in selected high mobility neighbourhoods, new subdivisions and residential complexes.

View the electoral district specific voter registration opportunities on the Elections B.C. website at: www.elections.bc.ca/index.php/2013-voters-list-update/#opportunities.
