Section 1: General Summary

Order for a General Election
The 38th provincial general election in British Columbia was held on May 17, 2005. This
was the first general election under the fixed election date provisions in the Constitution
Act
. The Constitution Act was amended in 2002, requiring that General Voting Day be the
second Tuesday in May every four years.

The Premier of British Columbia must still formally request the Lieutenant Governor to
dissolve the provincial parliament and order a general election. An election is called by
an Order in Council directing the Chief Electoral Officer to prepare and issue the writs of
election. Each writ is signed by the Chief Electoral Officer and the Lieutenant Governor
and addressed and issued to the District Electoral Officer of each electoral district. A writ of
election includes the date for the nomination of candidates, General Voting Day and when
the writ must be returned to the Chief Electoral Officer.

On April 19, 2005, the Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Iona Campagnolo, dissolved
the Legislative Assembly and an Order in Council was issued directing the Chief Electoral
Officer to issue the writs of election to all 79 electoral districts, ordering that the general
election be held on Tuesday, May 17, 2005.

During the 38th provincial general election, voters were provided two ballots – one for a
candidate and one for the Referendum on Electoral Reform. Under the Electoral Reform Referendum Act, the referendum was conducted in conjunction with the general election.
For voting results and more information about the referendum see the Statement of Votes,
