Registered voters across the province have until the end of the month to put a stamp on what voting system they want in 2021.
Until the deadline, Elections BC is tallying the percentage of packages received.
As of this afternoon, the Nechako Lakes electoral area is behind the provincial average of 1% as only 0.3% of eligible residents have sent in their ballots.
That’s only 44 of the more than 16,800 eligible voters in the regional constituency out of more than 3.2 million in BC.
Voters who didn’t receive a referendum package can request one up until Friday, November 23rd.
