ARE YOU REGISTERED TO VOTE?
The City of Kimberley will be using the most recent Provincial list of voters as our list of registered resident voters which means that if you are registered to vote in the next Provincial election your name will automatically appear on the City of Kimberley’s list. To check the Elections BC website to confirm you are registered, or to update your registration click here to be redirected.
Online registrations or updates will need to be made several months before the election in order for them to appear on the voters list that the Province sends to the City. If your name does not appear on this list you will still be able to register to vote at the voting place.
If you recently moved to the community, got married, changed your name, it is recommended that you check that you are registered properly with BC Elections prior to the next election to avoid delays on voting day.
