No elections results until at least 2 weeks after the electi

Post by mattinkelowna »

Elections BC spokesman Andrew Watson said employees in 87 electoral districts will count [700,000] mail-in ballots one by one. Current legislation means the counting can’t start until 13 days after the election, he added.

He also said the province with 3.4 million registered voters has received more than 700,000 requests for mail-in ballots as of early this weekend, compared to roughly 6,500 such requests during the 2017 campaign.

Thanks to Horgan for the needless gong show that will happen. :cuss:

No doubt the leftist, unionized workers at the post office will do a good job of making sure the mail-in ballots will be well taken care of for a couple of weeks.
Yeah, there was no need for an election until next spring or fall. And we all know that the pandemic will be done, finished, and completely over by then. Any day now there will be a vaccine. removed

So the post office keeps the mail in ballots?
They do not deliver them to Elections BC?
Then they should all be fired.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

A pretty good indication of what ? Please choose one option:

a) Horgan was really stupid and selfish to call this election

b) Enough of the electorate are stupid enough to fall for this selfish ploy

Personally, I hope he gets bitten on the backside

Of course, I'm one of the 600,000 votes yet to be counted. These 600,000 ballots will affect every riding in the province.
It's way to early to call this one. Remember, every green vote is one less vote for the NDP !

Ha, ha, the Liberals could run a shaved monkey in Kelowna and still win. Welcome to another four years in opposition, thankfully the rest of the province can see past you redneck, evangelicals.

Looking like a landslide victory for the NDP. However, the Kelowna ridings stayed Liberal, no surprises there. That will never change. Even before the election, they should have declared Renee Merrifield the winner for Kelowna Mission. [icon_lol2.gif]
