If you are not registered as a non-resident property elector on the District’s list of electors but qualify to be registered as a non-resident property elector, you may register as such prior to voting. You may apply for a certificate to register as a non-resident property elector by coming to the District office. In order to receive a certificate to register as a non-resident property elector, you must prove your identity (two pieces of identification which must between them prove identity and residence, one of which must have your signature) and your eligibility to register (for instance, a property title deed or current District of Hudson’s Hope property tax receipt, and a letter of consent from joint owners, if applicable).

We suggest that you apply for a Certificate to Register prior to voting. Presentation of such a certificate will allow you to vote without having to produce other proof of ownership of the property in question on voting day.

When applying for the certificate you will be asked to show:

  1. Two pieces of identification: one with residence address; one with signature of elector.
  2. Property title deed or property tax receipt.
  3. Consent Form – it is available at the District Office.
    – This is required only if the property is owned jointly with other individuals.
