But it appears British Columbians are thus far, a little slow in their response.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Elections BC was reporting that just 1% of all eligible ballots across the province had been completed and sent back.
Voters are asked two questions on the ballot.
The first question asks if we should keep the current First Past the Post voting system or move to a system of proportional representation.
You can answer one or both questions, and you can choose if you want to rank one, two, or all three systems on the second question.
Ballots have now been sent out to all registered voters, and those who didn’t receive one yet can ask for one until November 23, by contacting Elections BC at 1-800-661-8683 or [email protected] for more information.
If you’re out of town, you can have your voting package sent to a temporary address, or pick one up at a Referendum Service Office or Service BC Centre.
For your vote to count, completed voting packages must be received by Elections BC by no later than 4:30 pm on November 30.
