2005 British Columbia municipal elections

The Canadian province of British Columbia held municipal elections on November 19, 2005. Voters in each of BC’s 157 municipalities elected mayors and councillors, and rural voters elected directors for their regional district electoral area. School boards and other specialized public bodies (such as the Vancouver Park Board) have also been elected, and various local referendums are held concurrently.

Political parties and slates are a common feature of governance in some municipalities in the Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria areas, though the rest of the province’s cities and towns resemble the majority of Canada in lacking overt partisan alliances. The City of Vancouver, as well as its neighbour Richmond in particular, has an entrenched and polarized party system unique in the country.
