City of Vancouver releases official order of candidates' names for the 2022 election ballot

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      The Straight received the following bulletin from the City of Vancouver today (September 16). It is reprinted below in its entirety.

      The official candidates’ names to be listed on the 2022 Vancouver Election ballot is now available. Vancouver Election Office staff conducted a draw tonight to determine the order of names on the ballot, in accordance with section 79 of the Vancouver Charter.

      ​As in 2018, candidates’ names will not be listed alphabetically on the ballot, but in random order to ensure an equal playing field for candidates. This election, there will be a number beside each candidate’s name to make it easier for voters to remember the order when planning their vote.

      The official candidate list will be the same on every ballot, and is as follows (note: all reside in Vancouver unless otherwise stated):

      When and where to vote

      Voters have three options to vote in this election:  

      • Advance voting at any of 22 voting places open from 8 am to 8 pm on
        • Saturday, October 1;
        • Wednesday, October 5;
        • Saturday, October 8;
        • Tuesday, October 11; and
        • Thursday, October 13.
      • Election Day – vote from any of 82 voting places on October 15 from 8 am to 8 pm
      • By mail – Request a vote by mail package at, or call 3-1-1. The last day to request a vote by mail package to be mailed to you is on September 29. After this date, you can request until October 11 to pick up your vote by mail package.

      Voters are strongly encouraged to vote in advance or by mail, to allow more time to navigate the random order list on the ballot. Advance voting opportunities tend to have shorter line-ups.

      Why a random ballot draw?

      Research has shown many voters are more likely to vote for those listed first on a ballot. Candidates at the top of an alphabetical list are perceived to have an advantage over those lower down.
