General Local Elections

OFFICIAL RESULTS FROM THE 2018 GENERAL LOCAL ELECTION

UNOFFICIAL RESULTS FROM THE 2018 GENERAL LOCAL ELECTION

Elections for directors to represent the electoral areas occur every four (4) years as part of the General Local Election system in British Columbia (recent legislative changes have resulted in four-year terms rather than three-year terms). 

The next local government elections will be held on October 20, 2018.  Directors may be elected by acclamation (in the case of a single qualified candidate) or by voting (where there is more than one qualified candidate).

In the event a vacancy occurs for a director, a by-election to fill the vacancy will usually be held as soon as reasonably possible.
