Mail Ballot Voting is a service for non-residents who will not be in Whistler to vote on General Voting Day or Advance Polling Days. It is also a service for non-residents with a physical disability, illness, or injury which prevents them from accessing the voting place during voting opportunities. If these do not apply to you, click here to find the correct voting option for you.
You must complete and submit an “Application to Vote by Mail” in order to receive a Mail Ballot. Applications can be submitted in person at Municipal Hall during regular business hours, by email to email@example.com (link sends e-mail), or by Canada Post to the following address:
Chief Election Officer
Resort Municipality of Whistler
4325 Blackcomb Way
Whistler, BC V0N 1B4
Your application must be approved by the Chief Election Officer before you receive a Mail Ballot. If there are any issues with your Mail Ballot application, a member of RMOW Elections staff will contact you.
On the application you can select the method of delivery for your Mail Ballot. There are three options:
- You can opt to pick up your Mail Ballot at the customer service desk in Municipal Hall during regular business hours. Mail Ballots will be available for pick up between October 4 and October 18.
- You can designate another person to pick up your Mail Ballot on your behalf at the customer service desk in Municipal Hall during regular business hours. Mail Ballots will be available for pick up between October 4 and October 18.
- You can opt to have your Mail Ballot mailed to you. Mail Ballots will be sent using Canada Post standard mail service on October 4. Any approved applications received after October 4 that request delivery by mail will be sent as soon as possible.
Note: If you will be outside Canada between October 4 and October 18, we recommend you designate someone to pick up your Mail Ballot on your behalf and express post it to your out-of-country location.
The last day to submit an “Application to Vote by Mail” and receive a Mail Ballot is October 18. No applications will be accepted and no Mail Ballots distributed after October 18.
You are responsible for ensuring your completed Mail Ballot is received by the Chief Election Officer before the voting deadline.
The deadline for receiving completed Mail Ballots is 8:00 p.m. on October 20, 2018
Curbside Voting is a voting opportunity made by request to the Chief Election Officer and/or Deputy Chief Election Officer. A mobile voting station is brought outside the place of voting so that electors may vote from within their vehicle.
Choose one of the following dates and locations to vote:
Advance Voting Day #1
Advance Voting Day #2
General Voting Day
To vote we recommend you bring:
- At least two documents with your identity and place of residence (address). One document must have your signature.
In addition to having two pieces of accepted personal identification, you must also show proof of ownership of property in Whistler.
When you arrive at the voting location, you will need an election official to assist you and provide you with a ballot to vote. Ask someone entering the polling station to find an election official to see you. The election official will bring you a ballot if you request it. If you are unable to mark your own ballot, ask an election official, friend, or relative to help you.
