Data currency comments

These are the voting places used for the City’s municipal elections during Advance Voting and on General Voting Day.

Data set description

The City of Vancouver uses a Vote-Anywhere model. Voters can vote at any voting place within the City. This dataset includes all of the voting places available to voters for a given election.

Prior to the 2014 municipal election, the city was divided into voting divisions and voters were required to vote at a designated voting place within their assigned voting division.

The City operates an at-large voting system.

Note:

UBC Lands and UEL residents are only eligible to vote for School Trustees.
