Mail Ballot Voting
Update August 11, 2014
Mail in Ballots are a new option provided by Salmon Arm City Council for the 2014 Election. The applications are available here. If you would prefer a hard copy you can come in to City Hall and a staff member can print one for you or call 250.803.4038 and request that one be mailed to you.
    
The following electors are permitted to vote by mail ballot:
  1. persons who have a physical disability, illness, or injury that affects their ability to vote at another voting opportunity; or
  2. persons who expect to be absent from the City of Salmon Arm on General Voting Day and at the times of all advance voting opportunities.

Applications must be received prior to October 15 2014 to allow sufficient time for approval and mail distribution. Ballots cannot be provided until they are printed in late October, therefore anyone wishing to take advantage of this option must either be able to pick up or have picked up for them, their ballot package at Salmon Arm City Hall or it will be mailed to the address provided. Responsibility to ensure that the ballot reaches the Voting Place prior to 8:00 p.m. Saturday Nov. 15th is that of the Elector.
