General Local Election
The 2022 General Local Elections will be held on October 15, 2022.
The RDOS consists of nine Electoral Areas and six member municipalities. The municipalities include District of Summerland, Town of Oliver, Town of Osoyoos, City of Penticton, Town of Princeton, and the Village of Keremeos. Every four years the RDOS conducts general local elections to elect a Director to represent each of its Electoral Areas.
Each municipal Director on the Board of Directors is appointed by their respective Council from amongst their elected members.
The last General Local Election was held on October 20, 2018. See the 2018 General Election Official results.
At any time, the RDOS may also be conducting other voting, including Alternative Approval Process or Referendum. Information on these opportunities are available through RDOS Regional Connections as they arise.
Qualifications for registering as an Elector
There are two categories of electors for voting in local government elections: Resident Electors (you live in the community) and Non-Resident Property Electors (you own property in the community but live elsewhere).
The RDOS does not require registration with the Provincial Voters List. All electors must register at the time of voting.
