What are you voting on?

Mayor

The Mayor leads Council, and is the head of municipal government.

They direct municipal officers on behalf of Council, represent Council at ceremonies and in meetings with other organisations, and chair Council meetings as a voting member.

Council

City Council represents the short- and long-term interests of the community. Council votes on bylaws and resolutions on subjects such as:

  • Zoning and building permits (what can be built where)
  • Budgets (how the municipal government spends money it collects)
  • Regulatory matters
  • Municipal services, like the fire department or trash collection
  • Property taxes and other fees

You elect 8 councillors.

School Board

The School Board makes decisions to do with schools, like where resources will be spent, creating new programmes, and school policies. You elect 5 school board trustees.

Why we're asking you to spread the word

If we want to keep our democracy, we have to use it, even when what we're voting on is (seemingly) really small and local. Municipal elections have a pitifully low turnout... But you — and the people you know — can change that!

Your plan to vote

How

When

Where

What to bring

2 pieces of ID, proving who you are and where you live:

  • At least 1 piece should have your residential address
  • At least 1 piece should have your signature

If neither piece of ID has your address, you may make a solemn declaration instead.

Be on the safe side: Bring extra ID if you can.

VoteMate is made by one person

My name's Laef Kucheran! I'm a 21-year-old web developer from Burnaby.

I worked over 700 hours running VoteMate for this election. I volunteer all that time and pay for the site's expenses out of my own pocket because I believe it can help people vote. That matters to me.

Did VoteMate help you? Perhaps you can help me!
