Accessible Voting

City of Surrey is committed to providing accessible voting.

Curbside Voting

If you have difficulty entering the voting location, you may ask to receive and mark your ballot outside (curbside voting). You will need to bring someone with you who can advise the Presiding Election Official that you need assistance. Please visit the Where to Vote page for the accessible voting location near you.

Living in a Care Facility and Hospital Voting

Election staff will be visiting Care Facilities in October to drop off Mail Ballot packages for eligible electors who are unable to attend a voting location. Facility staff may contact the Election Headquarters if additional packages are required.

Special Voting Opportunities will be conducted for eligible electors who are residents or patients of the Surrey Memorial Hospital at the time of voting, as follows:

Friday, October 5, 2018

8:30 am to 12:30 pm
Surrey Memorial Hospital
13750 96 Ave, Surrey, BC V3V 1Z2

Multi-language Support

If you require translation assistance to read or mark a ballot, we encourage you to bring someone with you to provide assistance. Persons assisting a voter to mark a ballot will be required to sign a declaration affirming that they will:

  • Make the translation to the best of their ability;
  • Mark the ballot in accordance with the wishes of the elector;
  • Preserve the secrecy of the ballot of the elector being assisted; and
  • Refrain from attempting in any manner to influence the elector as to how the elector should vote.

In addition, many of our voting locations have multi-lingual Election Officials to help as required.
