Regional District Mail-in Voting

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary has mail-in balloting, enabling all eligible citizens to exercise their voting right.

Theresa Lenardon, Chief Election Office of the RDKB, says "The right to vote is basic. The mail-in ballot works well, and even it's for just a few, you are still providing that democracy."

Greenwood and many sister-municipalities do not share the view that all should be able to exercise their right to vote. They, in fact, deny it to some --- sometimes it is even many.

The bare truth is if people are not able to vote on the two voting days for whatever reason, and are further denied a mail-in vote, then what is left for them is taxation without any representation.
