Roundhouse is a Voting Place!

Illustration of five women stepping in and around large letters that spell vote. From the left: in front of the V, two white women hold each other around the waist, a black woman steps through the O speaking into a bullhorn, a brown woman wearing a hijab stands with hands on hips in front of the T, one white woman stands with a leg propped on the bottom of the E.

September has left the building and October brings with it turning leaves and civic elections. If you haven’t already seen the lawn signs and other hallmarks of local, political campaigning, it all comes to a head on Saturday, October 15.

For Vancouverites, this means voting for 1 mayor, 10 city councillors, 7 Park Board commissioners, 9 school trustees, and 3 capital plan questions. Check out this tool to help you plan your vote.

The Roundhouse is an official voting place for advance voting, Election Day voting, and mail-in drop off voting, with curbside voting on the Pacific Blvd entrance.
