How about "Vote Boxes" at the local bulletin boards?

REVISED!

How about a "Vote Letter Distribution System" at the bulletin board similar to the one that the NWCA newsletter is distributed in?

Green wooden vote boxes.
(A green wooden box similar to the one in the picture above that the North Westside Communities Newsletter is distributed could hold voting letters.)

 

Would you like to see a small wooden box to hold voting letters that residents could fill out at the local bulletin boards located in the "Central Okanagan West" area ... previously known as "North Westside Road" area?  Just like the green wooden box the "NWCA Newsletter" is placed in for residents to help themselves which are located near the entrance to each subdivison. 

The green wooden box could have a flyer on the front of it with what the vote is about and residents could choose to take and fill out a vote letter on the proposal.  We could place the box in plain view so residents could have a look for a new flyer as they drive by and know if there is something to vote on then.  Good example is for the alternative approval process.  The vote letter could be in the form much the same as the alternative approval elector response form.

This last part of the initial vote box concept doesn't seem to be going over to well, so lets scrap it!  Below is another idea that may work better.  Keep scroll down and keep reading!

Beside the wooden box could be another metal box that residents could place their votes into a mail type slot similar to the slot on the red Canada Post mailboxes with the handle that you pull towards you to put your letter in like this one, or they could be mailed directly to RDCO too, but it would be better to place your vote in the box for local counting to be posted on the internet here on this website for all to see.

Similar to a Canada Post mailbox but smaller!

But on a smaller scale than the red Canada Post mailboxes, and just large enough to hold the votes in that subdivision that the vote box is placed at?

Now that we have thought about it more, maybe a better idea is to have a compartment in the top portion of the green wooden vote box.  The top of the box could have a lid with a hole in it with a lock on it for the votes to go into the compartment after the vote letter is voted on and placed through the hole.  The lid could be unlocked and opened to remove the vote letters for counting.  The boxes could just be wooden boxes or metal boxes like the green Vernon Morning Star Newspaper box.

For a box located in the rain beside the bulletin boards or mailboxes, the lid on the top of the box could be made a little wider to shield the sides of the box, and the hole that the vote letter gets slipped into could be on the front side of the top compartment instead of the hole being in the top lid.

One concept of a vote box we could place near mailboxes for voting.

 

Clipart - New The new revised thought is how about instead of placing the vote letter in a slot near the mailboxes after voting on it, we could mail by Canada Post the vote letter to RDCO or the appropriate location instead.  This way there is no stuffing or tampering with the votes.  The vote letter could be designed in much the same style and form as the alternative approval process elector response form that seems to be legal and an acceptable way to say no, so why wouldn't it work for both a yes and no vote.

Please place your YES or NO vote at the very bottom below!

Before we revised the above vote box concept we received an email from one of the Regional District Directors (Len Novakowski) for the North Westside area but he said that he wouldn't support a vote box at the mailboxes because, "The Regional District does not have the function or resources to install or manage voting boxes."  Also Len questions the legality of unattended voting boxes when trying to determine a community issue.  He said he would not be supportive of a grant-in-aid for a voting box project.

We have asked Len to have a second look and check the legalities because residents could install and look after the vote boxes themselves.  Residents looked after the vote with the "alternative approval elector response form" themselves which could have been tampered with, so we asked Len to look into it further.

We were also told by Len that we need to work with the Community Association to resolve the flyer/bulletin board issue regarding the flyers all over the ground blown off the bulletin board by the wind. Click here to find out how to contact the North Westside Communities Association from their own webpage.  * Warning though, the NWCA may not answer their email at all, or for a very long while, so it may be better to phone them.  We have sent emails regarding the flyer/wind issue before and have gotten no response from the NWCA.

We are in the process of asking the Regional District if we would be eligible for a grant-in-aid for vote boxes. If residents would like to donate towards buying and building some voting boxes please let us know and we will just take names, email addresses and phone numbers for now, and if we get enough pledges for donations to build vote boxes for each subdivision, we will phone you back to ask you for your donation, but that's only if we can't get a grant-in-aid from RDCO.  Just email us your name, phone number and donation amount to Email Okanagan Lake BC
