BC electoral reform deadline today

Elections BC needs to get your ballot today (Friday) for your vote on electoral reform.

Rebecca Penz at Elections BC says the cut-off is 4:30 pm this afternoon - referendum packges will not be accepted after the deadline.

She says British Columbians are being asked two questions.

"Question one asks which system should British Columbia use for provincial elections - the current "First Past The Post" voting system - or Proportional Representation voting system. The second questions asks voters to rank three Proportional Representation voting systems - Dual Member Proportional, Mixed Member Proportional and Rural-Urban Proportional," says Penz.   

As of this morning - Penz says 1,000,356 packages have been returned - or about 41% of the ballots sent out.

Kelowna's Service BC Centre is located at 478 Bernard Avenue.
