On or before Saturday, October 15, eligible voters will cast their ballot to elect one mayor and eight councillors. It is important that all Surrey residents exercise their right to vote to set the path for the City of Surrey for the next four years. We will be keeping you up to date with information on how to vote and candidates. Please continue to check back as more information becomes available.
