Midnight on Friday is the deadline to request an HST Referendum Voting Package from Elections BC by calling 1-800-661-8683.

“The phones will be open until midnight on Friday,” said Acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James, “for those who wish to participate in the HST Referendum.  If you are not registered, you can call, register and request a voting package.

If you are registered and haven’t received a voting package, call Elections BC to have one mailed to you.”
