Each local government (municipality or regional district) is responsible for conducting its own general local election. Local governments may also conduct school trustee elections on behalf of boards of education. In Revelstoke, the municipality conducts elections for school trustees, and for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area B Director.

Elections BC is responsible for managing campaign financing disclosure requirements, investigations, and enforcing the campaign financing and third-party advertising provisions set out in the Local Elections Campaign Financing Act.
