Time to get out and vote B.C.

Voting in the province's 40th general election goes from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. today

'Vote'

It’s Tuesday, May 14 which means all of the signs, all of the door knocking, all of the telephone calls and all of the debates — well, maybe not the debates — end today.

Those 18 or older, Canadian citizens, and residents of B.C. for the past six months can cast a ballot in the province’s 40th general election.

Registered voters should have received a yellow card in the mail showing locations to vote between 8 a.m – 8 p.m. but even without the card, you can still vote with proper ID.
