Elector Qualification

There is no need to pre-register to vote as the registration of all electors for this election 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
  • a resident of BC for at least 6 months immediately preceding the day of registration
  • the resident of OR registered owner of real property in the Village of Port Alice for at least 30 days immediately preceding the day of registration, and
  • not disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in an election or otherwise disqualified by law.

 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.

Non-resident property electors must produce 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) to prove identity, proof that they are entitled to register in relation to the property, and, if there is more than one owner of the property, written consent from the majority of the property owners. Consent forms may be obtained from the Chief Election Officer by calling (250) 284-3391 or at the Village of Port Alice, 1061 Marine Drive during office hours 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday (excluding statutory holidays).


When a resident elector is required to show two pieces of identification, the identification must prove who they are and where they live — including the person’s name and residential address. One of the pieces of identification must also include the person’s signature (such as a driver’s licence or BC Services Card). If neither piece of identification shows the elector’s residential address, they may make a solemn declaration as to their place of residence.

Non-resident property electors must prove who they are and where they live as well as provide the address or legal description and the title (or other proof of ownership) of the property in relation to which they are registering to vote. Non-resident property electors must also demonstrate to the presiding election official that they have the written consent of the majority of all owners to vote as the designated non-resident property elector if they own the property with another person.
