Elections BC opens nine transit plebiscite offices

Voters who didn't get ballot can request one there, or drop off completed ballots before May 29 deadline

Elections BC has opened nine service offices to help ensure voters in the Metro Vancouver transportation and transit plebiscite are able to get ballots and return them by the May 29 deadline.

The offices are located at Capilano Mall in North Vancouver, Central City Mall in Surrey, Chinatown Plaza in Vancouver, City Square Shopping Centre on West 12th Avenue in Vancouver, Coquitlam Centre, Haney Place Mall in Maple Ridge, Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby, Richmond Centre Mall and Willowbrook Shopping Centre in Langley.

Voters who have trouble receiving mail or who didn’t receive a ballot in the mail can ask for one at any of the centres up until May 15 and drop off their ballot up until the 8 p.m. May 29 close of voting. They can also register to vote, update their registration and get other information on voting in the plebiscite at the offices.

Voters are asked to say yes or no to a proposed 0.5 per cent sales tax increase within Metro Vancouver to fund new rapid transit lines, improved bus service and other transit and transportation upgrades.
