"The volunteer has driven the voter to the polling station, which is a common practice of candidates, but then she stands outside of the entrance to the polling station wearing a bright orange/blue golf shirt emblazoned on the front with "BC NDP 2013". She is there for over 20 minutes as voters walk into the polling station. Is this not considered campaigning outside a voting station? I thought there weren't supposed to be ANY election signs or paraphernalia promoting any party within a certain radius of the voting stations?Given the generic nature of the golf shirts (BC NDP 2013), is this being repeated at every voting station in the Province by volunteers for the BC NDP (or other parties)? Is this allowed or is it a violation of the voting act?"
UPDATE: Reader in comments section (hat tip Jesse) confirms this action is a violation of BC Election rules.
