With the Premier expected to call a by-election this fall to fill the vacant provincial seat for District 16 Cornwall-Meadowbank, the Green Party of PEI will be holding a virtual nomination meeting on Monday, October 4th, to nominate our candidate (and next MLA for D16!).
Todd MacLean has stepped forward to carry the Green Party's banner in this by-election, and as of the nomination deadline last Friday remained uncontested. We are excited that Todd has come forward to seek the nomination, and we encourage all members to learn more about him here.
Please join us on Monday, October 4th as we nominate our candidate and launch our campaign for Cornwall-Meadowbank!
Here's how you can participate:
1. Join us on Zoom. Anyone may register to participate via Zoom by RSVPing at the bottom of this page. While all are welcome to join the meeting, only those who have been a GPPEI voting member in good standing since at least September 6th, 2021 will be able to vote.
Voting members who register for the online meeting will automatically also receive an online ballot to participate in the nomination vote. Since Todd MacLean is the only nomination contestant, the only other option on the ballot will be "No candidate".
2. Send in your questions! What would you like to ask the nominee before the vote? You can send your questions to the nomination meeting by writing to [email protected].
3. Want to vote but can't participate in the virtual nomination meeting? Click here to request an online ballot which you can cast in advance of the meeting. Online ballots will be issued within 24 hours of the request.
4. Want to volunteer on this exciting campaign? Sign up via our volunteer page at www.peigreens.ca/d16volunteer.
Those whose membership has expired within the last year may renew at any time up until the nomination meeting to regain voting privileges. You can check the status of your membership by logging into the Members Areas on our website, or by emailing us at [email protected]
Thanks, and we hope to see you online on Monday evening!
