General Local Elections 2022

The 2022 General Local Elections will take place on Saturday, October 15, 2022

Qualified electors in 10 Electoral Areas (EAs) within the Thompson-Nicola Regional District will elect one person to the position of Director for a four-year mandate, ending in October of 2026. In the event that there is only one candidate in any of the EAs, that person will be acclaimed to the Director position.

Information for Electors

There is no need to pre-register to vote, as the registration of qualified electors will take place at the time of voting. You will be required to make a declaration that you meet the following requirements:

  • 18 years of age or older on general voting day;
  • Canadian citizen;
  • resident of B.C. for at least 6 months immediately before the day of registration;
  • resident of, or registered owner of real property for at least 30 days, in the proposed Monte Creek Fire Protection Service Establishment area;
  • not disqualified under the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in the assent voting and not otherwise disqualified by law.

What to Do If:

I Live in the Proposed Service Area: Resident Electors must produce 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature). Picture identification is not necessary. The identification must prove both residency and identity.

I Own Property but Do Not Live in the Proposed Service Area: Non-Resident Electors must produce 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) to prove identity, provide proof of ownership (such as a tax assessment, certificate of title, transfer papers, etc.), and, if there is more than one owner, provide written consent from a majority of the property owners to one owner voting. 

Signed forms may be sent back with mail ballots or submitted on voting day.

This section will be updated closer to the General Elections date, once polling station information is available.

A person may only vote once per election, even if they own multiple properties or are a resident in multiple properties. A person cannot vote on behalf of a corporation, or as a non-resident property elector, based on a property owned wholly or in part by a corporation.
