Thank you for registering with BC Recalls! Please note the following important information.
This is not an online petition!
This web site is intended for volunteers, canvassers, organizers and Recall proponents. There is no such thing as a (legal) online petition. All legal petitions in British Columbia are mandated through Elections BC and require physical signatures.
What is the difference between a volunteer and a canvasser?
Every canvasser is a volunteer, but not every volunteer is a canvasser. People who may want to be involved with Recall in a limited capacity yet do not want to (or can not) canvass would be classified as a volunteer. There are NO limitations as to who can be a volunteer.
What will a volunteer do?
Typical duties would include:
- Telephoning registered voters and confirming their information on a voter's list
- Assisting with organizing events such as fund raisers and signing locations
- Collecting and distributing petition sheets to and from canvassers
- Updating content on the BC Recalls web site
- Attending and/or organizing group meetings
Who can be a canvasser?
A canvasser must be a registered voter. A canvasser does not have to be a registered voter in the Member’s electoral district, and may be registered as a canvasser for more than one petition. A separate registration must be made for each petition. A canvasser must have been registered in the MLA’s electoral district in the last provincial general election (May 12, 2009) in order to sign a petition.
What will a canvasser do?
Essentially a canvasser will do everything that a volunteer would do as well as:
- Collect signatures (canvass) door-to-door based on specific areas targeted with voter lists
- Collect signatures (canvass) at central signing locations
