Elections BC says seven days of advance voting for the provincial election will begin on Thursday.

An extra day has been added for those wishing to vote early in the election, up from six days in 2017.

Elections BC says the extra day is aimed at helping reduce the number of people at voting places during the pandemic, and voters should note that some voting places won't be open on every advance voting day.

Polling stations will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. from this Thursday to next Wednesday, and safety precautions will include protective barriers, physical distancing and officials wearing personal protective equipment.
