On Oct. 15, Richmond voters will elect one mayor, eight councillors, and seven school trustees.

Each candidate was given the option to submit a candidate profile, which includes a photo, a 150-word statement and their contact information. 

A printed voter’s guide will include voting information in addition to the profiles, and will be available at city hall, community centres, and libraries. In addition to a version in English, the voter’s guide will be available online in four languages: French, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Punjabi.

Voters have the opportunity to address candidates at all-candidates meetings, organized by community organizations. Community organizations interested in holding an all-candidates meeting may contact the candidates directly, and can ask the Richmond elections office to list their meeting online by calling 604-276-4100 or emailing elections@richmond.ca with the meeting’s date, time, location, candidate participants, and organizer’s information.

Eligible Richmond voters may vote in advance on Oct. 1, 5, 6, 7, and 8, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Alternatively, voters may vote at their designated voting place on Oct. 15 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Mail ballots will also be available for eligible Richmond voters.

Candidate profiles, a list of all-candidates meetings, and information about designated voting places are available on the 2022 Richmond Election app (which will soon be available on Android and Apple devices) and at richmond.ca/elections. The voter’s guide will be sent to all Richmond households starting in the last week of September. Voter cards are also being sent out this month.
