Lheidli T’enneh Election Re-Scheduled

Friday, March 3, 2017 @ 4:16 PM

Prince George, B.C.- The members of the Lheidli T’enneh were supposed to  vote for Chief and Council  one week from today, but instead, that election has been  rescheduled to April.

The Electoral Officer,  Loreen Suhr,  has issued a notice to all members,  saying the election has been   reschedule to April 12th    “This has become necessary due to concerns being raised that the return envelope enclosed with the mail-in ballot packages may not contain sufficient postage” reads the notice.

New mail in ballots are being issued on Monday March  6th.    The  election is now  set for April 12th.

Although a significant number of mail in ballots had already been received,   those ballots will be destroyed.   The new ballots will be a different colour from the original in order to ensure  only the new ones will be counted  and there is no opportunity for  one person to cast more than one  vote.

“I regret any confusion this may cause” says Suhr,  “however, it is important to ensure that all members have  confidence in the mail-in ballot process.”
