2022 General Local Election: Voting by mail

In addition to General Voting Day on October 15 and three advance voting opportunities on October 5, 8 and 10, all eligible District voters also have the option to vote by mail to elect one mayor, six councillors and four school trustees.

Verifying that you are eligible for mail ballot

To vote by mail, you must first complete an application to verify that you are eligible to receive a mail ballot. This application is available online in the Information for voters section of our website and may be submitted to the Chief Election Officer at elections@dnv.org, in person at District Hall or by mail addressed to Chief Election Officer at 355 West Queens Road, North Vancouver, BC V7N 4N5. Applications can also be picked up in person or you may request one be sent to you by mail.

Mail ballot application package 

Upon successful application, a mail ballot application package will be sent to you as soon as the ballots are available. Applications received after September 21 may not allow sufficient time for a mail ballot package to be mailed to you and returned by mail. If time does not permit reliance on the mail system, we recommend that you arrange to pick up your mail ballot package in person from District Hall. Completed mail ballots may be returned to the Chief Election Officer by mail or dropped in the District Hall mail slot at the front door. Mail ballots may not be dropped off at voting locations on General Voting Day or advance voting days.

The Chief Election Officer must receive the completed mail ballot no later than 8pm on October 15, 2022.
