Despite an extension to the voting period, Elections BC is still reporting a voter turnout of just 39 percent on the on-going electoral reform referendum.
Originally voting was set to close on November 30th, but rotating postal worker strikes compelled the government to push the closing date to this Friday.
Now, with the revised date fast approaching, the government is urging residents to return their voter packages in person to a Service BC or referendum office.
While mail is now moving smoothly through Canada Post, the time to mail in the ballots and have them received on time has passed.
In order to be counted, ballots must be received by Elections BC by 4:30 on December 7th.
There is no minimum voter turnout required.
