British Columbia is having a referendum on what voting system we should use for provincial elections. This is a fundamental aspect of our democracy that all British Columbians should care about.
The referendum is being held by mail from October 22 to November 30, 2018. Registered voters will get a voting package in the mail from Elections BC between October 22 and November 2, 2018. If they are not already registered they should phone Elections BC at 1-800-661-8683.
Elections BC wants to ensure that all eligible voters in British Columbia have the information they need to register and vote. Elections BC is sharing this information on Facebook (Elections BC) and Twitter (@ElectionsBC). These include links to their website and to videos about how to vote and the basics of the four voting systems. They also have a Voter’s Guide, accessible here: https://elections.bc.ca/docs/referendum/2018-Referendum-on-Electoral-Reform-Voters-Guide.pdf
