If you live in the Vancouver-Burrard or Vancouver-Fairview districts, you should be heading to the polls today (open 8:00am until 8:00pm) to elect your new representative in the Provincial government.

Vancouver-FairviewCandidates in Vancouver-Fairview:
Emery, Jodie – British Columbia Marijuana Party
Hanni, Wilf – BC Conservative Party
MacDiarmid, Margaret – BC Liberal Party
McGinn, Jenn – New Democratic Party of B.C.
Sterk, Jane – Green Party of BC

Vancouver-BurrardCandidates in Vancouver-Burrard:
Emery, Marc – British Columbia Marijuana Party
Griffiths, Arthur – BC Liberal Party
Herbert, Spencer – New Democratic Party of B.C.
McLeod, Ian – BC Conservative Party
Read, Drina Alicia – Green Party of BC

I conducted a few interviews with Vancouver-Burrard candidates, and although time was too tight to arrange meetings with all, it was very informative experience.

Update: The numbers are in (via News1130) and the NDP took both ridings:

    Thanks for the reminder! I still gotta do some research on where each candidate stands — Google here I come!

    I just received my voter’s guide for the Vancouver City Hall vote (Mayor, Council, Park Commission), looks like there are some very interesting candidates for Mayor! Would love to see some profiles of them or interviews with them here!
