Voters need to take action

Re: “Tenants miss HST ballots” July 14-20

Before printing Mark Fornataro’s conspiracy theory of a trend of fewer tenants being able to vote, because of the number of HST ballot mailings to people who have moved, you should have checked what address database was used.

Surely the B.C. voter list was used, because it was a legal referendum. My understanding is that people must take action to get their address changed in B.C.’s list, unlike the federal mess which is somewhat automatic. Voters have the ability to ensure mailings are correctly addressed, we just have to remember to act for ourselves.
