Asian Journal - - WORLD -

Sur­rey: Sur­rey First may­oralty can­di­date Tom Gill says the in­tegrity of our vot­ing sys­tem is key and he fully sup­ports the mea­sures be­ing taken to­day by the City of Sur­rey to en­sure every vote counts, and every vote is au­then­tic.

This after City of Sur­rey Chief Elec­tion Of­fi­cer An­thony Ca­puc­cinello Iraci stated at a news con­fer­ence this af­ter­noon that “no bal­lots have been sent out by mail, there­fore the mail bal­lot vot­ing process has not been com­pro­mised”. “Free and fair elec­tions are the cor­ner­stone of our democ­racy,” said Gill. “This is an im­por­tant elec­tion for our com­mu­nity be­cause we have so many sig­nif­i­cant is­sues in front of us, ev­ery­thing from pub­lic safety to hous­ing af­ford­abil­ity, tran­sit and com­mu­nity in­fra­struc­ture. The ac­tion be­ing taken by our city’s chief elec­tion of­fi­cer gives me con­fi­dence that we’re go­ing to have a fair elec­tion and that we can have con­fi­dence in the re­sult on Oc­to­ber 20th.

“I want to con­grat­u­late our city’s elec­tion team for their early due dili­gence and the ef­forts they are mak­ing to en­sure the in­tegrity of our elec­tion process.”
