Voting in the Chilliwack School Board By-Election

Mail-In Voting


For those who already registered to Mail-in Vote:

As soon as your mail-in package request is received, packages will be mailed out with instructions on how to complete and return a ballot. 

Completed ballots can be returned by mail – ensure you use at least 2 stamps, dropped off at a voting venue on advanced voting days and general voting day, or dropped off at City Hall’s drop box, available seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Mail ballots must be received by the end of voting on February 13, 2021 at 8:00 pm. 

*It is the voter’s responsibility to ensure ballots are returned on time. Ballots received after 8:00 pm on February 13, 2021 will not be counted. 

Due to the potential for postal delays, residents are encouraged to drop off their ballots at City Hall or one of the voting venues on advanced or general voting days, if possible.

Safety Measures

The City of Chilliwack is committed to delivering a safe and physically distanced by-election during the COVID-19 pandemic. Following Public Health, Elections BC and WorkSafeBC directives, the City’s COVID-19 safety plan for each voting place ensures the by-election will be safe for voters, candidates and election staff.
