LEADERSHIP FAQs

When can I vote, and how?

Voting for the next leader will open at 9:00 AM PST on Thursday, February 1 and continue until 5:00 PM PST on Saturday, February 3.
Anyone who is a party member by December 29 will be able to vote, online or by telephone.

Once you’re a member, we encourage you to register to vote as soon as possible – just visit bcliberals.com/register or call 1-844-214-7503.


What’s different about the process this time?

In the 2011 leadership, a personal identification number (PIN) was sent by mail to every BC Liberal member.

To improve the security and integrity of the process, PINs will not be sent by mail this time. Instead, members will register to vote online or by phone. Upon registration, you’ll be sent a verification code – which you will use to retrieve your voting credential (similar to a PIN) online or by phone once voting opens on February 1, 2018.


How will I get my verification code?

You need to register to get your verification code. You can do so at bcliberals.com/register or by calling 1-844-214-7503.

You can choose to get your verification code by email, text message, or automated phone call – as long as your contact information is complete and up to date in our membership database.

We’ll send your verification code right away – and then we’ll send it to you again when it’s time to vote.


How do I get my voting credential/PIN?

Once you’ve registered to vote and received your verification code, sit tight until voting opens at 9:00 AM PST on February 1, 2018.

As soon as voting is open, you can use your verification code to retrieve your voting credential online or by telephone.


I’m concerned my membership information is incomplete or out of date. What do I do?

Just send a quick note to voterhelp@bcliberals.com, and we’ll get right back to you.


I signed up as a party member, but I’m not able to register – why not?

If you signed up using a paper form, there’s a chance we haven’t received or processed your membership yet. We’ll be processing memberships received from the leadership campaigns over the course of December and into early January.

If you’re certain that you’re already a party member, please call the Help Desk at 1-844-214-7503 or email voterhelp@bcliberals.com.
