Why we're asking you to spread the word

If we want to keep our democracy, we have to use it, even when what we're voting on is (seemingly) really small and local. Municipal elections have a pitifully low turnout... But you — and the people you know — can change that!

What to bring

If you're already registered, you don't need ID to vote in Port Moody.

  • If you're not sure if you're registered, best bring ID anyways.
  • If you're registered, but your registered address or name is incorrect (usually because you've moved or updated your name since), you will need ID.

2 pieces of ID, proving who you are and where you live:

  • At least 1 piece should have your residential address
  • At least 1 piece should have your signature

If neither piece of ID has your address, you may make a solemn declaration instead.

Be on the safe side: Bring extra ID if you can.

VoteMate is made by one person

My name's Laef Kucheran! I'm a 21-year-old web developer from Burnaby.

I worked over 700 hours running VoteMate for this election. I volunteer all that time and pay for the site's expenses out of my own pocket because I believe it can help people vote. That matters to me.

Did VoteMate help you? Perhaps you can help me!
