Charter School Voter Guide

British Columbia Charter School VOTER GUIDE for Snap Election of 2020

We endorse candidates who publicly support the idea of legislation to allow the voluntary formation of 20 charter schools in British Columbia (to match up with Alberta) through their personal statements or their party’s platform.

If in your riding there is no candidate with a Social Mavrik endorsement, you have our permission (!) to skip marking an “x” on your ballot and instead write in “No charter school candidate”.

The write-in tactic will accomplish several important objectives:
 •   Satisfy your civic duty of voting
 •   Get your vote counted by Elections BC as a Rejected Ballot
 •   The resulting total count of Rejected Ballots will send a message to conservative parties that there are voters out there for very conservative ideas and they should get their act together for the next election by running a candidate in your riding.

Following the election, this Voter Guide will be updated with:
    the 2020 count of Rejected Ballots
    the 2020 count of votes earned by each endorsed candidate

When ready, the October 24th and November 16th updates will be announced by email, Facebook and Twitter.

Please add my name and email address to the Social Mavrik list of email addresses.

The Voter Guide is arranged into 5 geographic areas:
    Island         Burrard        Fraser        Interior         North

The number of Rejected Ballots in 2017 and 2013 elections is shown for each riding with a Write-In choice.
