Voting in Langley

Election day is fast approaching. If you have any last-minute questions, check out our guide.

  • Oct. 16, 2015 10:00 p.m.

This Monday, Oct. 19 is election day across Canada.

Many Langley residents have already voted, with thousands heading out to the advance polls.

But for those who haven’t voted yet, or haven’t made up their minds, there are just a few things to know before election day.

When can I vote?

In British Columbia, polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

If your job is keeping you very busy on election day, Elections Canada says your employer must allow you time off.

“By law, everyone who is eligible to vote must have three consecutive hours to cast their vote on election day,” according to Elections Canada. “If your hours of work do not allow for three consecutive hours to vote, your employer must give you time off.” However, your boss can specify when you are given time off.

Where do I vote?

Your voter information card, which most eligible voters will have received, tells you your polling place. If you haven’t received it, go to www.elections.ca and use their voter information service to find your polling place.

Which riding am I voting in?

Due to population growth, ridings have changed in B.C. Local Langley and Surrey ridings have been realigned, and Langley voters are now either in the Cloverdale-Langley City riding, or the Langley-Aldergrove riding.Cloverdale-Langley City

Cloverdale-Langley City includes all of the City, along with a strip of Langley Township west of 200th Street and north as far as the Trans Canada Highway interchange. All other Langley voters are in the Langley-Aldergrove riding.
