Voter Registration and Qualifications:

From the CVRD website:

Qualified Electors of Electoral Area H – North Oyster/Diamond are advised that a By-Election will be held on November 28, to elect a Director to fill the position for the remainder of a term expiring in the fall of 2022.

In addition to general voting day, advance voting is available at the Microtel Inn and Suite, 12570 TransCanada Highway, from 8am-8pm:

  • Wednesday November 18th
  • Tuesday November 24th

Residents who are eligible electors, but not on the Voters List, may register on the day they vote. No advance registration is available as the CVRD has adopted the most current Provincial List of Electors for this specific By-Election.Following the By-Election any newly registered Resident Electors will be added to the Provincial Voters List.

The CVRD maintains its own Non-Resident Voters List (people who own property in the electoral areas of the CVRD but live elsewhere).

Eligible Non-Resident Property Electors may also register at the time of voting. To apply to register as a Non-Resident Property Elector in advance, please download the application and consent form here. Contact the Legislative Services Division at 250.746.2503, during regular office hours, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays to book an appointment to submit your application by October 6. Two pieces of identification and proof that you are the registered owner of the property (Title print) are required at the time of submission. For your convenience, a quick overview of voter qualifications is listed below.

Postal Voting

With the rising number of Covid cases I would like to recommend that people take advantage of the option to vote by mail in ballot. Stay safe everyone! Ben

It is the responsibility of the person applying to vote by mail ballot to ensure that the mail ballot is received by the Chief Election Officer by 8:00 p.m. on November 28. Canada Post cannot currently guarantee delivery timeframes, so please allow extra time if returning a ballot by mail. Information based on standard mailing dates is provided in the Mail Ballot Voting guidelines document here and should be reviewed prior to proceeding to the on-line application. Applications for mail ballot voting may also be printed from the links below, or arranged by contacting the Mail Ballot Presiding Election Official directly at 250.746.2508, or by email at
