Poll: Do Vancouverites like the rain?

It was a tight vote.
Vancouver's forecast shows plenty of rain is on the way.

With Vancouver's reputation for being a rainy place, you'd think many people who live here enjoy the rainy seasons.

And that'd be true. Many do.

But in V.I.A.'s latest poll, it's not (quite) the majority.

Just under half of our readers enjoy the rainy season, which appears to have arrived in Vancouver. It was a tight vote though, with just a few votes separating the two. In fact, only 22 voters in Vancouver made up the difference in the local poll, just a couple of votes more than the margin of error.

Vancouver Is Awesome polled 814  readers and asked the question: Are you looking forward to Vancouver's rainy season?

The poll ran from 9/24/2023 to 9/29/2023. Of the 814 votes, we can determine that 468 are from within the community. The full results are as follows:

Yes 48.50 % local, 48.16 % total    
No 51.50 % local, 51.84 % total    
  Local   Total

Results are based on an online study of adult Vancouver Is Awesome readers that are located in Vancouver. The margin of error - which measures sample variability - is +/- 3.43%, 19 times out of 20.
