On October 20th, Vancouverites from every neighborhood head to the polls to elect ten at-large councillors and one mayor — every neighborhood except one. West of Blanca street, there are 15,000 permanent residents and 12,000 students who can’t vote for park board, city council, or mayor. The CBC's Justin McElroy draws from his own reporting to explain why residents in and around UBC can only vote for school board and for one person on Metro Vancouver's regional board.
