Where can eligible voters vote?
Enter your address in the map below to confirm you are eligible to vote in the municipal election. Some addresses, such as those in Sun Rivers, are not actually inside the City of Kamloops boundaries, and therfore, residents at these addresses are not eligible to vote (you may, however, vote for a TNRD Director for your electoral area; also, if you live outside the city boundaries but own property within the city, you may vote as a non-resident voter).
