What if I require assistance to vote?

The District of West Kelowna must ensure its voting locations are as accessible as possible. In cases where accessibility issues are unavoidable, please consider the following solutions:


  • If you find it difficult to get into a polling station, please ask another elector who is entering the polling station to have an election official come out to speak with you. You may then ask that election official bring you a ballot - this is called curbside voting.
  • If you are unable to mark your own ballot, you may ask an election official, friend or relative to help you.
  • If you require a translator, please bring one with you.
