If your pro rep ballot hasn't arrived in the mail yet or you aren't registered, don't worry. You can still vote in the referendum — but you have to act fast.
Elections BC has set a deadline of MIDNIGHT THIS FRIDAY, November 23, as the last day to register or request ballots for this referendum.
If you haven't received your ballot, or you did receive it but made a mistake filling it out, you need to contact Elections BC or a Service BC Referendum Office to pick up a new one.

You will need to provide your name, date of birth, address, and one of the following identification numbers:
- your B.C. driver’s licence number,
