You can vote in a municipal election if you:

  • Are a Canadian citizen (Note: landed immigrants are not eligible to vote)
  • Have lived in B.C. for at least 6 months immediately before voting day
  • Are not disqualified by law from voting

White Rock residents who meet all these requirements can vote.

Other Eligibility

You may also be eligible to vote as a non-resident property elector if you:

  • Are eligible to vote as a resident elector in another municipality, regional district or school district; and
  • Own property in the City of White Rock for 30 days or more before you register to vote.

Note: In this circumstance if you own property with someone else, only one non-resident property owner may vote.

Non-Resident Property Owners

If two or more non-resident property owners own a single piece of property, the majority of owners must designate - in writing, using Form 2-8 - Non-Resident Property Elector Consent Form (PDF) - one owner as the non-resident property elector for that property. If you own property along with a corporation, then none of the owners of the property are eligible to vote.
