Is my name on the current list of electors?

This year the City has updated its election registration processes, and will now be using the Provincial elector list, prepared by Elections BC, for resident elector registrations.  If you would like to make sure you are on the voters list, you can do so by registering with Elections BC before August 17, 2022 electronically via the following link or by phone (1-800-661-8683). Visit the Elections BC website at https://elections.bc.ca/voting/register-to-vote/ for more information on how to register to vote or to update your voter information (i.e. residential or mailing address).

Note that should you not reside within City limits, but qualify to vote in the City of Williams Lake’s local government election as a non-resident property elector (see Election FAQ's No. 3 and 4), please contact the Chief Election Officer or Deputy Chief Election Officer (250-392-1773/1774; elections@williamslake.ca), or visit the Corporate Services office at City Hall, 2nd Floor, 450 Mart Street. Office hours are 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays. Advance non-resident property elector registrations will be accepted at the City of Williams Lake Corporate Services office until August 23, 2022. Registrations will not be accepted after this date but will be accepted on voting days. Pre-registration for non-resident property electors is encouraged.

Eligible resident and non-resident electors will also be able to register at the time of voting.
