2022 General Local Elections

Delta Votes.
Your voice. Your choice.

On Saturday, October 15, 2022, Delta residents will vote to elect 1 mayor, 6 city councillors, and 7 school trustees. Once elected, the mayor, city councillors and school trustees will serve a four-year term.

Why vote?

Every Canadian citizen has the right to vote, and a cornerstone of democracy is free and fair elections. Voting gives Canadians the power to choose officials that best represent them. Your vote matters as those elected to serve on Delta City Council make decisions on services that impact Deltans’ daily lives such as parks, recreation programs, animal and bylaw services, waste and organics collection, land development, and police and fire services. The Delta Board of Education makes decisions on maintaining a school system that reflects local priorities by setting plans, policies and an annual budget.
