Elections BC (formally, the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer of British Columbia) is a non-partisan office of the Legislature responsible for conducting elections in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Its federal equivalent is Elections Canada.

In each district Elections BC is represented by a District Electoral Officer (DEO) and a Deputy District Electoral Officer (DDEO) who oversee the establishment of an office within the district when an election is called. Often this process begins prior to the writ of election.
