Mail-In Ballot Voting
Voters in the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen are eligible to vote using a mail-in ballot if they:
- Have a physical disability, illness or injury that affects their ability to vote at another voting opportunity.
- If voters expect to be absent from the Regional District on voting day and at the times of all advance voting opportunities.
- Voters who reside in East Gate Manning Park of Electoral Area 'H' are eligible to use a mail-in ballot, without meeting the above two requirements, as it is remote from the voting places.
To receive a mail-in ballot package you must first submit a Mail-in Ballot Application to the Regional District office between November 1, 2011 and November 17, 2011. If there is no challenge to registering you as an eligible elector, we will put your name on a list to receive a mail-in ballot package. The mail-in ballot package contains instructions, a ballot and the necessary return envelopes that will protect the secrecy of your vote.
Non-Resident Property Electors must also complete Non-Resident Property Elector Application and Non-Resident Property Elector Consent forms to accompany the mail-in ballot application.
In order for your ballot to be counted in the election, it is your responsibility to return the mail-in ballot package to the Regional District Office no later than 8:00 pm on General Voting Day - November 19, 2011.
