Date

The Town of Comox municipal election will be taking place on Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Comox Community Centre located at 1855 Noel Avenue. 

The Town will also be offering advance voting opportunities, available to all eligible voters and we encourage you to come to one of these opportunities as lineups will be smaller. Electors are reminded that if you are on the voters list, you do not need to bring any identification with you. Those not on the voters list will require 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature). Picture identification is not necessary. The two documents in combination must prove identity and residency. It is important to note when using the combined BC Driver’s Licence and CareCard it counts as 1 piece of identification.

Non-resident property electors must produce 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) to prove identity and must also produce proof of ownership in relation to the property in the way of a State of Title Certificate or a 2022 Property Tax Notice. 

Voters in the Town will be asked to elect six councillors and one school trustee for School District No. 71. Voters can vote in-person at advance voting days or on the election day, October 15, as follows:
