For my petition each canvasser is vital.
More vital than signatories.
One signatory obtained by a canvasser is sufficient support for one day voting.
A registered canvasser becomes acquainted with the petition procedures.
By registering as a canvasser a registered voter takes political action between provincial elections. Such action may promote a cause or a candidate or both in preparation for the next election, be it a provincial, federal or local trustee one.
A registered canvasser will see his or her name on two online lists, one with names in alphabetical order and one with names in geographical order.
The alphabetical list is maintained on the Elections BC website.
The geographical list is maintained on the Social Mavrik website. It shows each canvasser's home riding. There are now 2 approved canvassers
on the geographical list.
If you are thinking of registering as a canvasser, of course there is an Elections BC application form. When a completed form is approved by the proponent (that's me) it is submitted to Elections BC. An official canvasser identification card is issued along with instructions on how to be a good canvasser and sent to the proponent who forwards it to the newly registered canvasser. The application form is here
. Please send the completed form to this email address
or mail it to the contact address shown below.
As I write there are 0 canvassers
showing on the Elections BC list which may not be updated until August 9th.
Canvassers for this One Day Voting petition will be invited to occasional half-hour group Zoom calls hosted by me for training and strategizing plus question and answer conversations.
Not interested in drama queen displays at the protest camp? How about a quiet and dignified process of obtaining one signature as a registered canvasser from an acquaintance who prefers in-person voting as a social event for his or her community.
