Mail Ballot Voting

Voters in the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen are eligible to vote using a mail ballot.

Please see Mail Ballot Voting in the Q&A section for further details.


How to register to VOTE

All electors (aka voters) must register at the time of voting. There are two categories of electors for voting in local government elections:

Resident Electors (you live in the community) and Non-Resident Property Electors (you own property in the community but live elsewhere).

A Non-Resident Property Elector may register in relation to one piece of property only and must complete the Non-Resident Property Elector declaration. If more than one person owns the property, only one owner may register and that person must have the written consent of a majority of the other owners (original signatures only). No corporation is entitled to vote.

Non-Resident Property Elector Application Form No-7-2

Non-Resident Property Elector Consent Form No-7-3

The RDOS does not require registration with the Provincial Voters List.


Identity Documents

When registering, you must provide two documents proving your identity and residence. One of the documents must have your signature.

Please see Identity Documents in the Q&A section for further details.

The municipalities include the District of Summerland, Town of Oliver, Town of Osoyoos, City of Penticton, Town of Princeton, and the Village of Keremeos. Every four years the RDOS conducts general local elections to elect a Director to represent each of its Electoral Areas.
