Doctors of BC will be holding a run-off election for the President-Elect position. See below for their media release:
New election to be held for President-Elect
Statement from Allan Seckel, QC
Chief Electoral Officer and CEO, Doctors of BC
“A verification of the results in the vote for President-Elect has been completed.
As part of the process, Everyone Counts Canada found â€“ independently of anyone at the Doctors of BC â€“ that one vote that ought to have been counted, was in fact not counted.
With that vote included, the result is a tie between Dr Brian Day and Dr Alan Ruddiman.
As Chief Electoral officer, it is my responsibility to ensure an impartial outcome and a fair process. I have concluded that a run-off vote will be held between the two candidates. It will start June 5th and conclude June 18th. Â All members in good standing who are eligible to vote under the bylawsÂ will be eligible to vote in the run-off.â€œ
