Charter School 2020 Voter Guide Updated with Election Results

British Columbia Charter School VOTER GUIDE for Snap Election of 2020 – updated with election results

We endorsed candidates who publicly supported, either the idea of legislation to allow the voluntary formation of 20 charter schools in British Columbia (to match up with Alberta) or fully funded school choice in general, through their personal statements or their party’s platform.

In a riding where there is no candidate with a Social Mavrik endorsement, the voter could write in “No charter school candidate” on the ballot instead of a single “x”.

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.

When Elections BC publishes the Statement of Votes on their website, this Voter Guide will be updated. As of June 7, 2021 while waiting for the Statement of Votes to be published, the “Interim Statement of Votes” was used to update this guide with:
    the 2020 count of Rejected Ballots

The Rejected Ballots update was announced on June 8, 2021 by email, Facebook and Twitter.

I want to be notified, please add my name and email address to the Social Mavrik distribution list of email addresses.

The Voter Guide arranges ridings into 14 regions within 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. Now updated for 2020.
