Mail ballot boxes design contest
In partnership with School District #41, the City of Burnaby is engaging local students to participate in an art competition to design a wrap for mail ballot boxes for the 2022 local government election. The theme is “It’s 2022 – Why Vote?” This competition is an opportunity for students to have their artwork featured on mail ballot boxes across the City while they learn about the importance of the electoral process.

Your City—Your Choice.
