Have a say in the future of British Columbia. Voting is your chance to speak up about issues that affect your life. It takes just a few minutes to have a say in your future and your province.

If you are a student, you can vote in either the riding where you reside while going to school, or in the riding you usually live in when you’re not at school. It’s up to you.
