British Columbians: Elections Bc and Referendum

british columbians: A referendum service office run by Elections BC for the 2018 referendum on electoral reform and proportional representation, according to Toronto Star. All ballots must be received by 4 30 p.m. on Friday Twitter/ElectionsBC But even in the final days, many voters expressed confusion about what is on the ballot and how they should vote. The referendum asks whether B.C. should switch to a proportional representation voting system or keep its current first-past-the-post system. Voting closes at 4 30 p.m. on Friday, and since Elections BC must receive all ballots by that time and no later, it's too late to send yours in the mail. Here is everything we know, and what we don't yet know, about the referendum, its controversies and how British Columbians are participating.
