PC Party Announces Member/Supporter Sign-Up Extension to Receive Ballot for Upcoming Leadership
The PC Party of Newfoundland and Labrador has extended the deadline to sign-up as a member or supporter in order to receive a ballot in the up-coming leadership race to Tuesday January 30th, 2018 at 5:00pm.
Following intense interest in the leadership of the PC Party, the member/supporter portal had some technical issues over the weekend potentially limiting members of the public from signing up.
The PC Party of Newfoundland and Labrador wishes to give members of the public maximal opportunity to sign up to vote in the upcoming leadership. The intermittent outages of the system over the weekend may have limited that and for this reason an extension was decided upon.
Party President Graydon Pelley said:
“I am pleased to see such an interest in our Party over the course of this leadership campaign. Thousands of Newfoundland and Labradorians have come forward to participate in our leadership process with the hope of defeating the current Liberal Government in 2019. While a system outage is not ideal, it speaks to the intense level of interest over the past few days and the desire for change in this province.”
If further technical issues are experienced that may prevent members of the public from signing up, the PC Party will revisit the extension on the deadline.
Members of the public who wish to receive a ballot to vote can sign up as a member or supporter on the PC Party Website: https://crm.pcpartynl.ca/membership
