Who is eligible to vote?

Resident electors must meet all of the following requirements at the time of voting:
  • 18 years of age or older on general voting day;
  • A Canadian citizen;
  • A resident of British Columbia for at least 6 months immediately before the day of registration;
  • A resident of the City of New Westminster for at least 30 days immediately before the day of registration; and

Non-resident property electors must meet the above eligibility requirements; however, in lieu of the 30-day residency requirement, a non-resident property elector must have been a registered owner of real property in New Westminster for at least 30 days immediately before the day of registration.
