If you’re planning on dropping off your proportional representation referendum ballot at a mailbox, stop right now.
Elections BC is urging everyone to walk in and drop off their voting packages at any Service BC location before the deadline on Friday, Dec. 7 at 4:30 p.m. PT.
According to Service BC spokesperson Rebecca Penz, it is now too late receive any ballots dropped off for pick up at a mailbox or currently in transit.
The deadline to vote was originally set for November 30th but the deadline was extended by a week due to rotating strikes at Canada Post.
Since then, the federal government has passed legislation forcing Canada Post to end all rotating strikes.
Although Canada Post is now up and operating, Penz said Elections BC is still strongly encouraging voters to personally drop off their ballot.
Penz said the process to drop off your voter package at all locations is quick and easy, as they are not processing packages on the spot.
