If you were listed on the Provincial Voters List, you should not have to register again. The Town of Qualicum Beach uses the Provincial Voters List prepared by Elections BC, to which it adds registered Non-Resident Property Electors. The period to register to vote or update your address through Elections BC has closed. To confirm if you are on the Qualicum Beach List of Electors, call 250.738.2202 or 250.738.2207. If you are not on the Town’s List of Electors, you can still register until September 27, 2011 at Town Hall, or when you vote at Advance Voting or on General Voting Day.
To register, you must bring at least two documents that prove who you are (BC Driver’s Licence, BC ID, Care Card, SIN card, Citizenship Card, bank credit or debit card) and where you live (telephone, hydro, or gas bill, property tax document); one of these documents must contain your signature. The acceptable classes of documents that election officials may accept as evidence to identify electors are established by the Province in Local Government Elections Regulation 380/93, Section 3 Click here to view these regulations.
Non-Resident Property Electors must also bring evidence of ownership (recent Land Title Certificate) and a Consent form signed by a majority of owners. Contact staff at Town Hall for the required forms.
