The Province is encouraging eligible voters in B.C. to participate in the local government election process and to vote in their communities on Saturday, Nov. 19.
To support voters whose first language isn't English, the Voter's Guide to Local Elections in British Columbia is now available in Punjabi, and can be downloaded from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development's local government website. The guide answers basic questions eligible voters might have as they prepare to vote.
The voter's guide is just one of many online resources voters can access on the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development's local government website. Voters can find guides on subjects such as campaign financing and how to support a local candidate. The site also provides important election calendar deadlines, and answers to the most commonly asked questions about local government elections.
