2022 Municipal Elections

2022 Election

On Saturday, October 15, 2022, Village residents will vote for one Mayor and four Councillors. The election will be held in the EA Ross Room at the QC Community Hall.

General local elections in B.C. are held every four years on the third Saturday in October.

General local elections (and by-elections) are the most direct way for the public to influence their local government, school district, or other local governance body by determining the individuals who then make decisions and govern on their behalf following general voting day. Learn more on the Elections BC Website.

Village List of Electors

The Village of Queen Charlotte uses a voters list prepared by elections staff from previous polling days. If you are listed on the Provincial Voters List, you may be required to register to be on the Queen Charlotte voters list as the Village maintains its own list.

Voting Day Registration

If you're not on the Village's List of Electors, and didn't register during the advance elector registration period, you can still register to vote on Voting Day (i.e. Advance Voting Days and General Voting Day). To register on voting day, you must show two pieces of identification which proves who you are and where you live (i.e. includes your name and residential address), and one of the pieces of identification must also include your signature (e.g. driver's licence, BC Services Card). If neither piece of identification shows your residential address, you may make a solemn declaration as to your place of residence.

Non-Resident Property Electors (i.e., those who own property in the Village but live elsewhere) must produce two pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) to prove identity; as well as proof that they are entitled to register in relation to property, and, if applicable, written consent from the other property owners. A property tax notice or certificate of title are acceptable proof of ownership.
