Elections BC is doing its best to reach out to potential voters for the past two months with staff going door-to-door, sending out cars through the mail along with flooding the public with advertising to build up numbers for the upcoming provincial election May 9.

The deadline to pre-register of Tuesday, April 11, is slowly approaching.

Elections BC said the most of the people who still need to register are those who have turned 18 between the last provincial election and now.

The most important part of getting on the voter list is receiving your voter card.

Potential voters can register online or by calling 1-800-661-8683.

If you are unable to do so before April 11, you can also register at the polling station on election day.

Voters head to the polls May 9. This election sees two new ridings in BC.
