General Information

In all municipalities and regional districts across BC, general local elections are held every four years on the third Saturday in October. From time to time there is a need to hold other types of voting opportunities such as: a by-election (to fill a vacancy) or assent voting (also known as a referendum). The District of Lantzville is currently governed by a Council of seven elected officials: one Mayor and six Councillors. This will change with the 2018 general local election to a Council of five elected officials: one Mayor and four Councillors (per Council Size Reduction Bylaw No. 110, 2014 adopted by Council after approved by electors in the November 2014 referendum).

Council makes decisions which directly affect your everyday life: from land use and community planning, to the maintenance of roads, parks, and trails, to recreation, waste collection, fire rescue, bylaw enforcement and the provision of sewer service and potable water. You have the opportunity to impact these services and the future of Lantzville when you vote to elect your 2018-2022 Council. Council adopts policies and laws that map the future of Lantzville and govern day-to-day operations that are delegated to the Chief Administrative Officer and staff to implement and manage.

General local elections are a shared responsibility between each local government and Elections BC. The District of Lantzville is responsible for running its own general local election according to municipal bylaws and Provincial laws regulating local government elections. Council has appointed a Chief Election Officer (CEO) and Deputy CEO to run the general local election process and oversee all local election administration activities. Elections BC is responsible for the campaign financing and advertising rules for local elections and non-election assent voting events under the Local Elections Campaign Financing Act.

School District No.68 and School District No. 69 appoint their own Chief Election Officers who are responsible for their School Trustee Elections and provide the respective school board trustee candidate information for the District of Lantzville ballot. Depending on where you live or own property within the District of Lantzville, visit the relevant School District No. 68 Nanaimo Ladysmith Website or School District No. 69 Qualicum website for more School Trustee Election information.
