The City of Penticton will be offering free transit for the provincial election on May 9.
A reminder to voters that you must show identification to cast a ballot — both at advance polls and on general election day, and that can include a B.C. drivers licence, B.C. Identification Card or B.C. Services Card (all with a photos) or a Certificate of Indian Status.
An alternative is to show two pieces of identification, both with your name on them and one at least one with your current address on it. Examples of documents that will be accepted include government-issued documents such as CareCards, both certificates, passports, citizenship certificates and B.C. Services Cards, along with non-government documents with your address prited on them such as your “where to vote” card, utility bills and even a bus pass.
Voters without any identification can have a registered voter vouch for them at the poll.
For a full list acceptable documents, and information about where to vote, how to vote and other election-related issues, go to the Elections BC website at electionsbc.ca.
