Here are the two types of ballots you can get are, I'll be using the write in ballot becausedue to the higher than expected volume you had to request your ballot before the nomination period closed.

@Mainebot YEP. Wanna bet they reused that from last election and didn't notice?

@Canageek almost certainly. I'd bet the snap election was even snap internally, not just to the public

@Mainebot I mean, the media was speculating about it for a while. You'd think they'd you know, start prepping this stuff just in case, you know?

illustration of how voting by mail works in British Columbia 

@Canageek no way, once you start moving the wheels everyone is gonna know, esp. other parties. I don't know why they would bother populating it with ANY numbers.

@Mainebot Oh did you get two ballots? Is that on purpose?
