British Columbia Voters: Vision Accessibility Related to the BC Province-wide Referendum on Proportional Representation
by Albert Ruel
A referendum on which voting system British Columbia should use for provincial elections is being held between October 22 and November 30, 2018.
Registered voters will receive a voting package in the mail between October 22 and November 2. If you do not receive a voting package or are not currently a registered voter, you can ask for one from Elections BC, a Referendum Service Office or a Service BC location by November 23.
For this referendum, voters who read braille can request a braille template package and ballot question to be used when completing the mail-in voting package.
Please call Elections BC at 1-800-661-8683 to request a braille template and ballot question, or if you
have any questions regarding voting in the referendum. Information on the voting systems featured in
the referendum can also be found at
