No, for this nomination the only option for voting is in-person.   If for some reason you are unable to leave your home because of health concerns or self-isolation please contact the Elections Officer & Deputy Elections Officer for the District 10 Nomination Meeting by emailing [email protected]

With three candidates, will there be multiple rounds of voting?

No, there will only be one round of balloting and the vote will be conducted by preferential ballot.  This means that members will mark their first-choice candidate with “1”, second choice candidate with “2” and third choice candidate with “3”, etc.

Can I mark just one candidate, or do I have to rank all of them?

You can rank one, two, or three candidates on your ballot.   If ballots are only marked with “1” or clearly signifying their choice for a candidate (ie. Marking an X instead of a 1) then the ballot will only count for the specified candidate.   If that candidate is eliminated and a second round of counting is required then any ballot without a clear second choice will be considered eliminated.  

Do I need my PC membership card to vote?

No, you don’t need your PC Membership card to vote at the nomination.   Volunteers will have the roster of those who are eligible to vote at the polling locations.

Will I need photo ID to vote?

Yes, you will need some form of ID to vote at the polling station.   Eligible pieces of ID are the same as Elections PEI rules which can be found here.

Do I need to wear a mask when I go vote?

We are encouraging all voters to wear a mask when voting, but they are not required.  All volunteers within the polls will be wearing masks.

Is it safe to have everyone voting in-person with COVID-19?

The District 10 PC Association submitted a detailed COVID-19 Operational Plan to the Chief Public Health Office and it was approved.   The voting process will be setup different than the past to abide by public health orders.   To review the CPHO Approved COVID-19 Operational Plan click here.

Can we attend the announcement of the results?

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions the announcement of results will be by invitation only.   However, there will be a live stream available of the announcement on the PC Party Facebook page.

How will we know who wins?

Results will be posted as soon as the Elections Officer & Deputy Elections Officer confirm the results and announce them on Saturday, October 3rd.  An approximate time of the announcement will be available closer to the date of the announcement.
