The Port of Vancouver district encompasses an area of about 111 square miles. This area is divided into three separate commissioner districts, with one commissioner representing each district. Currently, Brian Wolfe represents District 1, Eric LaBrant represents District 2, and Jerry Oliver represents District 3.
Every 2 years one of the District positions is up for grabs. In 2017 is it District 1. This year there were only 2 candidates running and so there was no primary election- both candidates automatically went through to the general. We have heard there is some confusion regarding who can vote in November's election and so we hope to clear that up here.
For Port primary elections, only people in the District can vote, but for the general, voters in all 3 Port districts participate in the election. Which means if you live in any of the 3 Port of Vancouver Districts- you will be able to vote for Don Orange! Below is a simple map with all 3 Port Districts outlined.
If you are along the edges or are uncertain if you actually live in the Port of Vancouver Districts you can check out the Port of Vancouver's map of the Port Districts HERE! There is a zoom in function at the bottom right you can use to be certain of the exact boundary.
Our race will likely be at the very bottom of the ballot, so tell everyone you know to make sure they vote down the entire ballot- don't miss our race!
To recap- all 3 Port of Vancouver Districts vote in our election this November- not just those who live in District 1. Make sure you vote down the entire ballot to vote of Don!
